Alex gets an email with the tips user: "concert" + password: "olympia", but he gets no access to the email account. Afterwards, when he hears a U2 song ("With Or Without You") he recalls a past experience with his wife and tries to log in with user: "U2" + password: "1995" which grants him access.
The fact is that U2 only played live three times in 1995, they were no full concerts, and none of them was held at a venue called "Olympia". 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.
