Great movie !
5 January 2002 | by Philippe DebruyneSee all my reviews

This is a thriller at its best. You don't really expect what somebody can do to have a job. Also a really unusual plot. The film is fast, powerful, very well filmed and the characters are very well played. (one actor played in a good dutch comedy: Rent a Friend) Enjoy
