French Anthony Hopkins...
14 March 2015 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this directors previous movie "Truands" and really enjoyed this one very much as well. It's however a very different cake he's baked this time. The frenetic unfolding of events in "Truands" makes place for a slow moving, basically simple story revealing itself. Most of the action mainly happening in one location interrupted with scenes of Carré's colleague (a great Sylvie Testud) doing her job, in this case looking for her partner.

It's all filmed with great confident style and the prime location is a gorgeous one that lends itself perfectly for the story, with it's cold modern design.

Gerard Lanvin is always solid and the three henchmen, in particular "Sascha" who is very eager to do what he does best, are good too. It's however the great Niels Arestrup who is again the showstopper. He is the French Anthony Hopkins with his empty stare and menacing yet sophisticated appearance.

Not as great in the tension department as "Truands" but still a highly enjoyable exercise in suave and style at which the French are so good. 7/10
