An accidental discovery near a doctor's estate stirs up some painful memories eight years after his wife's hideous murder, and now, things are bound to take a turn for the unexpected. Does the good doctor know more than he's letting on?
Pediatrician Dr. Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) misses his beloved wife Margot Beck (Marie-Josée Croze), who was brutally murdered eight years ago when he was the prime suspect. When two bodies are found near where the corpse of Margot was dumped, the Police re-open the case and Alex becomes suspect again. The mystery increases when Alex receives an e-mail showing Margot older and alive.Written by

Guillaume Canet and Jean Rochefort share a lot with the characters they play. Gilbet Neuville (Rochefort) is a horse breeder and his son Philippe (Canet) is a show jumper. In real-life, Canet was born to a family of horse breeders and was a show jumper with the French National Equestrian Team. As for Rochefort he has been a horse breeder since the sixties, he owns Le Haras de Villequoy, and served as the equestrian events consultant for France Televisions at the 2004 Olympics. See more »

I owe this guy from 3 years ago. I took my kid to the hospital, all bruised up. Fuckers thought I'd beat up on him. This guy tells the cops it wasn't me, my kid's a haemophiliac. As long as he needs us, we're there, okay?

I'm passionate about this movie, it's extraordinary.
This movie is extremely engaging, well-acted, detailed, moving, thrilling, exciting and satisfying to watch. The stakes get higher and higher as the plot unfolds. What is so unexpected is the many facets the film has, it's not told on one-level there is a mixture of comedy and tragedy that is totally charming and believable. There is a great sense of involvement that gets the viewer attached to the characters and the unique situation that presents itself. It's a total roller- coaster of a movie that has you on the edge of your seat. An extraordinary story that is interestingly told. I've never felt the desire to write a comment on a movie before so the fact that I've taken the time to do it says a lot about the power of it's content. I really recommend this film, it takes you on a journey that divulges secrets beautifully as the story unravels. I left the film crying with a mixture of joy and sadness.
