A great turn by Gerard Depardieu. While he is playing the main role and his character is written straight forward, he gives that man edges. There is a scene where he is looking at another person and you can't quite figure out, what he's up, what his true feelings are (his look is fatherly, but at the same time also menacing ... and curious) ... his facial expressions, his acting ability in general is really great and he really enjoys his role in this movie.
While he is great, there are of course quite a few other things, that are letting him (and his performance) down. There is Asia Argento (very obviously and badly dubbed in french) and quite a few story tweaks, that you have to work around. If and when you do that, you will enjoy Gerard's almost one man show. The question is, are you willing to do that.
