At one point in the movie the main character is on Yahoo mail; As he logs in the password he types ("olympia") appears in full letters, while in reality it would be hidden (you would only see "*******").
While technically the Firefox browser does have a plugin that reveals inputs in the password field, one can assume that most people don't use Firefox, much less have the plugin installed. See more »
Excellent film, beautifully acted, and wonderfully transposed to France
The film, although adapted from an American novel, wonderfully brings to life Paris and the countryside surrounding it. Many characters and events that had seemed typically or even uniquely American were transposed to France so well that they seem in the film typically Gallic.
The acting is terrific -- even the Briard is wonderful.
Tautly suspenseful,a tale of corruption and evil, it is also and above all a story of love: true love between lovers, familial love between parents and children, and the sustaining love of companions and friends. Excellent!
Francois Cluzet won a deserved Cesar for his role as did the director.
