"Fast-paced, well-written and engrossing..."
2 March 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Former French fashion and advertising photographer, screenwriter and director Fred Cavayé's feature film debut which he co-wrote with screenwriter Guillaume Lemans, was shot on location in Spain, France and Belgium and is a France-Spain co-production which was produced by producers Olivier Delbosc, Eric Jehelmann and Marc Missonnier. It tells the story about a middle-aged French teacher named Julian Auclert whose life is changed the day the police storms his apartment, arrests his wife named Lisa for murder and she is sentenced to twenty years in prison for a crime he is convinced she did not do. Alone with their six-year-old son named Oscar who has seen little of his father due to his work, Julian realizes that he has to turn to drastic measures in order to prevent his beloved wife from dying behind bars and initializes a plan to save her.

This character-driven and plot-driven drama from the late 2000s about a French model family who becomes victims of an unmanageable conspiracy is a precisely and engagingly directed fictional tale which is notable for it's authentic and naturalistic milieu depictions and great cinematography by French cinematographer Alain Duplantier. French filmmaker Fred Cavayé's fine directorial debut which was based on an idea by screenwriter Guillaume Lemans is impelled and reinforced by it's efficient and significant narrative structure, the unpredictable plot and the prominent acting performances by French actor Vincent Lindon and German actress Diane Kruger. A fast-paced, well-written and engrossing thriller which gained a nomination for Best First Work at the César Awards in 2009.
