Superb Nerve Wrecking Thriller.
21 September 2012 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie sitting on the edge of my seat, completely mesmerized from beginning to end. While I was watching it I kept thinking how impressively put together it was, like an intricate clockwork handled with a masterful touch by an artful master.

This girl, Karine Vanasse, is a terrific actress, top drawer, and she's on screen most of the time, with a wide range of emotions perfectly believable and appropriate for the rol, a rol that requires enormous amounts of tense moments for her.

As good as her is the police officer (Eric Cantona) but diametrically opposed to her school of acting, since he is totally restrained in his movements but his performance is outstanding.

Another reviewer criticized many-many weak points in the script, and I agree with all those findings, but at the same time I wonder: Why criticize almost to a vivisection point a movie that is only sheer entertainment? Even reading any of the Shakespeare plays we can point out thousand implausibilities in them and yet, we take him for granted now.

I don't see it that way, this movie is a TEN stars, because it does what it promised: To entertain, and it would be very difficult to top it at that.

Sensational script, sensational camera work (to a dazzling point), sublime editing, perfect actors, even pacing from beginning to end, excellent soundtrack, magnificent director (Frederic Schoendoerffer)... Anything else, El Exigente?

And to top it all, Paris, the most beautiful city on this earth of ours!
