Well, after nearly 700 reviews and 10 years writing them, i reach the conclusion that there are really two (living) actresses who moves me deeply : outside my homeland, Noomi Rapace is the one and as a French, Geraldine Nakache (and not Pailhas) wins the medal : she can be as gloomy as she can be funny ; she has a sweet voice and she is totally cute ! Here, she teams up with François Damiens and like his Belgium compatriots Poolvorde and De France, he has this little something that makes him simple, natural and engaging. So, reuniting this cast is the guaranteed formula for a great movie for me and they could have done whatever, i will appreciate the result in all cases.
But, here, the movie offers an original twist with the recruiting an actor to do criminal re-enactment. This is really a great discovery to play with as the essence of acting is indeed to take place of somebody else. Sure, with this, you can put needful insight for an investigation and the movie really lives on with that. As the game that inspired my title, the audience is caught with solving the crime and identifying the murderer !
The definitive excellent inspiration was to choose a splendid and natural location in the high mountains and in addition at the best season (winter). So, the wood building, the snow, the pines are a beautiful change from the usual shooting of Paris and country that french cinema keeps delivering.
Thanks for everyone (and especially Geraldine) involved in making this movie a such great gift for this Christmas 2013 !
