He is a suspect in the continuing investigation and is unsure of his own innocence although he has an alibi from his previous girlfriend, Claude. Francois' polygraph (lie detector) test proves inconclusive and while he awaits his second test, Lucie's film is completed with its own ideas on who killed Marie-Claire. Written by Diana

Not so good movie by Robert Lepage about a guy who's girlfriend is dead. He's got to take the lie detector (polygraphe) test but the results are inconclusive.

The movie is not very convincing with maybe one too many twist in the plot. The acting is not very inspiring also. In all, a very average movie.

Out of 100, I gave it 72.
