Intelligent, cold character study of a French serial killer
14 June 2020 | by Sir_AmirSyarifSee all my reviews

Intelligent, pretty cold character study of a French serial killer of young girls that, unfortunately, only took stabs at the surface without digging deeper into the meaningful material. The casting is excellent with Guillaume Canet's performance as the exemplar Gendarme with sociological issues is both chilling and convincing.
