Storyline

Jonathan and Anaïs Hopkins have only been married a few months, but life together is a nightmare. Anaïs is unstable, cold in bed and often away visiting her sister. Or is she? When Jonathan learns that his estranged father has left him a huge fortune, all he needs is a divorce. Things are looking up when absent Anaïs gets into a serious car accident. At the hospital, Jonathan finds another woman in his wife's place - an incredibly beautiful woman. But she's paralyzed and unable to speak. Why was this perfect stranger's handbag filled with his wife's identification? Where is the real Mrs. Hopkins? Written by tv5monde.com

A movie in shreds
12 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is the first installment of several MTV movies based on Boileau/Narcejac novels .This famous team was one of the best thrillers writers and their works produced at least two classics both in IMDb top 250 ("vertigo" "Les Diboliques").

I was looking forward to watching "La Vie En Miettes" :what a disappointment!I have read all BN novels and I did not even recognize the plot (with the exception of a vague story of inheritance).The movie is slow-moving,with uninteresting characters and when it's over ,you have the feeling of having watched a nothing story;the hero never seems in jeopardy (one of the writer's permanent features,par excellence the victim's thriller) One can expect more of the next movies ;it can hardly be worse.
