The successful novelist Judith Ralitzer is interrogated in the police station about the disappearance of her ghost-writer. A serial-killer escapes from a prison in Paris. A missing school teacher leaves his wife and children. In the road, the annoying and stressed hairdresser Hughette is left in a gas station by her fiancé Paul while driving to the poor farm of her family in the country. A mysterious man offers a ride to her and she invites him to assume the identity of Paul during 24 hours to not disappoint her mother. Who might be the unknown man and what is real and what is fiction? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Another Certified Winner From Claude Lelouch
19 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Love mysteries with loads of plot twists? Here is the film for you. Claude Lelouch (A Man & A Woman)has crafted a finely honed thriller, with a top notch cast that takes us in the mind of a writer,who may or may not have some dubious means of collecting ideas for her novels. There are loads of other characters tossed in to make this a film to keep you both thinking,as well as on the edge of your seat. Fanny Ardant (always welcome in any French film) plays the writer to perfection. Dominique Pinot plays a pivotal figure who may (or may not) be a serial rapist. The rest of the cast also turns in some finer than fine performances. Dammit, let's face it...there is a pathetic lack of films like this produced in Hollywood (or as I sometimes prefer to refer it to Hollywierd). I guess as long as there is quality films being produced in Europe (or Asia,Africa,or where ever),there is no lack of films to be enjoyed,out there.
