Storyline

Must watch for Suspense lovers
5 October 2013 | by sankhan99See all my reviews

Though ratings and views of this title are quite low on IMDb but as a fan of French thrillers I thought to give it a try and it lived up to my expectations. As usual another underrated and much ignored suspense thriller on IMDb. My intuition leads me to the fact that mostly suspense thrillers are rated by comedy lovers on IMDb which result in low ratings. Because of this quite good movies get ignored.

Plot of this movie is very tricky. A simple situation is turned into complex one with the passage of time. I am quite satisfied with its pace and doesn't bored me at all.

Acting from both leads is fantastically good. Both are well chosen for their respective roles and actresses also have done justice with it. Director is good as well.

Baseline is that "Don't relay on ratings and see it yourself ". It will turned out to be 90 odds minutes spent well.
