Entertaining thriller, which tells the story of "François", an ordinary man who during a train journey meets "Chiara", a beautiful girl. For the police, this indicates that it is "Anthony Zimmer," a clever swindler who are in the spotlight, and they can not identify otherwise, they do not know his face. With this promising premise starts "Anthony Zimmer". Once the conflict, loses a bit of steam, but never bored, which is very pleasant during the whole film. The only negative is that the story is a bit simple, or perhaps predictable, but know how to entertain.
In the other sections, also plays. The atmosphere is substantially achieved, with luxurious and warm and sunny scenes on the French coast. For its part, the technical section not remarkable: it is in this respect like any other tape. And finally, the cast is quite solvent, unremarkable. The protagonist, Yvan Attal, gives the appearance of an ordinary guy with no remarkable feature and Sophie Marceau is also well in her role as mysterious and sensual woman, which achieves her spectacular physical smoothly.
In short, this is an entertaining film that does have a good time, but for fans of this genre is an ordinary film.
