Mortal disappointment
14 February 2001 | by (Champ sur Drac, France) – See all my reviews

Beneix did very good movies... before this one. He is still a master of camera work... but... Mortel Transfert is sometimes mortally boring and lacks the thrill of After Hours or the comic twist of U-turn.

Boring in spite of good actors. The trap in which the main character (Jean-Hugues Anglade is good) entangles himself is not catching. Paris as a backstage decor is probably the best idea but the rest does not add up. Shrinks belong to NY world, they do not fit in a French reality more than the tacky Cadillac driven by Anglade.

This movie is far too serious for what it is supposed to demonstrate.
