For his second feature as a director, Frank Mancuso - an ex policeman - shows the tale of a cop who finds himself in total distress. A man with everything around him falling apart, collapsing. We can remember his first film starring Jean Dujardin, playing here again a cop. Our lead in RIF is Yvan Attal in another brilliant performance. The story begins in the same way as Jonathan Mostow's BREAKDOWN, Philip Leacock's DYING ROOM ONLY, or I don't remember the director's name's LA MEUTE. The lead character leaves his wife at a gas station - or a restaurant for the two other movies - because of a mechanical problem with his car, and the wife suddenly disappears in the thin air...
The screenplay doesn't give many surprises, except the very end, so depressing. But the film is intriguing and worthwhile. No lenght or boredom.
