Storyline

It's been six months since Rachel Siprien disappeared. At the request of Rachel's mother, private detective François takes over the investigation. The young woman, with a complex and multi-faceted personality, is part of a strange network made up of her best friend, her ex-boyfriend, her stepfather and everyone who knows her well or even slightly. François begins to frequent these various friends and acquaintances, and penetrates Rachel's daytime and nocturnal habitat. He spies, asks disturbing questions, and intentionally fills in the blanks left by those he questions. Written by Polly_Kat

Here is the French version of Philip Marlowe.
8 May 2002 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Ana amazing atmosphere, made of small details and uncommon actors. The story is not, in my mind, the real point of the film but a way to enter in a PI's life for a week. A must see if you're fond of hard-boil lunatic guys !
