I speak French, but watched this with a friend who does not, and we both enjoyed it very much. It's suspenseful and the casting is excellent. Gilles Lelouche drives the movie as a determined and gutsy left-wing journalist who never seems to get nervous (as the viewer does when he meets his "sources" in shady locales). It was also fun to spot Charles Berling again in another good role after Ridicule. Laurent Capelluto is convincing and mysterious in his role as as a financier accused of fraud. In fact, all of the characters are memorable. The cinematography is also beautiful, with rarely seen shots of Luxembourg. Yes, this is based on a true story. Watch it!
