Storyline

A ruthless gang led by private detective Joseph Plender is extorting rich people and famous fashion photographer Vincent Mandel seems the next victim. He is married to Hélène, daughter of one of the richest people in Europe, but not quite happily. In fact the marriage is on the brink of a divorce and a judge is deciding who will take the two children. Can Hélène take them to Germany or will they stay with Vincent? Vincent has a lot on his mind and he improvises when model Sofia Kippiani comes to his studio, but his makeup crew doesn't show up. Before he knows it, he is accused of a rape. Things go worse and worse for Vincent, he sees his entire life slipping away and, most importantly, he might lose his children. But why does his former schoolmate Joseph Plender seek contact with Vincent and even solve a nasty problem for him? Does Plender want something more than money?

Did You Know?

Goofs

Vincent's lawyer tells him to "plea guilty". Until 2011, in France, only crimes punishable with no more than 5 years of jail were subject to the "plea guilty" procedure. After 2011, it has been extended to crimes punishable with 10 years of jail. Murder is not one of those cases. See more »

Le Serpent - c'est superb!!!!
11 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is truly excellent - This is one of the best films I've seen in a long while. Both the plot and acting are absolutely first rate. OK so it's in French with subtitles however within just a minutes you feel like your actually in there with them. Anyway it's set in France and should be in French. The sad thing is that there were only three of us watching it which seems to be a pattern with subtitled films these days. No doubt Hollywood will jump on it so you'll be able to see it in a form of English one day - but it won't be the same. All I can say is if you didn't go because you couldn't be 'arsed to read the subtitles you missed something really really special.
