Koen De Bouw,
In the MARSHLAND a serial killer is on the loose. Two homicide detectives who appear to be poles apart must settle their differences and bring the murderer to justice before more young women lose their lives.
The story of two men on different sides of a prison riot -- the inmate leading the rebellion and the young guard trapped in the revolt, who poses as a prisoner in a desperate attempt to survive the ordeal.
The pediatrician Alexandre Beck misses his beloved wife Margot Beck, who was brutally murdered eight years ago when he was the prime suspect. When two bodies are found near where the corpse of Margot was dumped, the police reopen the case and Alex becomes suspect again. The mystery increases when Alex receives an e-mail showing Margot older and alive. Written by

I owe this guy from 3 years ago. I took my kid to the hospital, all bruised up. Fuckers thought I'd beat up on him. This guy tells the cops it wasn't me, my kid's a hemophiliac. As long as he needs us, we're there, okay?
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.
