When Sophie arrives in the company, Clare apologizes and tells that her boss is on vacation and will return only two months later.

Too good to be true?
1 December 2012 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The premise itself is anything but new, so you won't (or shouldn't) be too surprised when the story kicks in. Of course if you don't shut off your brain (as the main character apparently did here), you will have some issues with some of the decisions she makes. Or rather doesn't make, which is more than unfortunate. But if you don't really care about the logic, this will be a tension filled thriller.

The lead performance is good (again not accounting for internal logic) and it Cantona sort of plays a Tommy Lee Jones inspired character. But softer if you can believe that (I know). A nice little french thriller that is decent enough to watch then
