Deserves a little credit for the idea
31 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This film had a good idea. The context of the relation between mental health doctor and his patients....mixt with suspense and drama.

I think the execution however was poor...not so much on the side of Daniel Auteil...but on the side of the patient. Something was missing in order for us to really understand and connect with the back story. It is as if the writer hid too much for us to really connect with some of the crucial players of the movie...in an attempt to not reveal too much of the ending. But this camouflaged information makes us not care about the story to begin with.
