Paul Exben is a success story - partner in one of Paris's most exclusive law firms, big salary, big house, glamorous wife and two sons straight out of a Gap catalog. But when he finds out that Sarah, his wife, is cheating on him with Greg Kremer, a local photographer, a rush of blood provokes Paul into a fatal error. Standing over the corpse of his wife's lover, Paul knows that his perfect life has gone for good. But by assuming the dead man's identity and fleeing for an isolated part of former Yugoslavia on the beautiful Adriatic coast, Paul gets another shot at being himself and, at last, seeing the big picture.

As Paul watches from the shore, the sound and light from the explosion of his sailboat (on the horizon), reach him nearly simultaneously. At the height Paul was sitting, the horizon was roughly 5 miles away and the sound would take over 20 seconds to reach him, while the light would reach him almost instantly. See more

Sure, anyone else likes it, but I wanted to have a drink with you.
