This is one of the better thrillers which I have seen over the past years. The plot is beautifully developed and it's a total delight from beginning to end. You would really appreciate the way in which the director has paced the film.
This film is about a woman (Myriam Cyr) who works for a group or gang which extract money from other people in the only way they know...through illegal means! Now Myriam decides, after robbing an old couple of 3 million dollars,to part away from the people under whom she works so that she alone could enjoy the pleasure of the money which she has stolen. She tries to do that by killing another woman in a car accident who looks almost the same as she does and then declare herself dead in the eyes of the world. This film concentrates on how this strategy of hers' founders. The performances given by Maryam and Jamie are simply outstanding.
A highly recommended film!!
