Storyline

Nuanced thriller. Renier is Gabriel Chevalier, an ex-cop whose personal life has taken a nosedive. He's a gambler, an alcoholic, a widower and single-parent to a rebellious teenage daughter. Unable to hold down regular work, he takes up the dubious offer of a job which involves sitting in an empty office waiting for the phone to ring. When it does, Chevalier is told to deliver a black briefcase to a specific address. One final instruction, he must never, ever, look inside the briefcase. Written by anon

Vintage violence
25 August 2014 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

For once ,a good title ,and a screenplay which does not fall apart in the first reel,which is rare in French contemporary thrillers;besides,Jérémie Rénier is in it,and that was my main reason to watch it.

The director has a good sense of mystery and he makes the best of the settings: A candlelit apartment,a public garden where our ex-cop meets a strange old man,an apparently quiet canal,a strange ceremony in China ,a meeting in the dark forest,an auction sale (probably a hint at Hitchcock),and this shop where all the clocks have stopped ...the director knows only one tempo:accelerated ,and his hero seems overtaken by events in the first half.

Some flaws appear in the last third:the providential intervention of the superintendent (who,by chance ,is the hero's half brother) ,and the banal last pictures:after such a revelation (and the scene in the cellar is deeply moving in its horror),we expected more.

For a short while,I feared these suitcases might lead the story into the dreadful "transporter" territory ,but it is not so :Rénier does not portray a superman,à la Statham,but an ex-cop whose only reason to live is his daughter ;his past is revealed late in the story .
