This movie has all the premise to be great, but it falls short in the second part. It builds up nicely and then fizzles, runs out of steam. So many lost opportunities for twists and turns, this could have been a great dark comedy. Instead, we're left with strong start that never truly delivers, and stale scenes that could have been much more.
The leading pair fails to build good screen chemistry, I was never convinced of their "drama" - it's as if they never rehearsed the lines before, and somehow I don't think it's because Romain.
Romain Duris is a great actor, and he does a great job navigating the role and evolving it for us to see. I'm glad to see the European industry still has a beating heart.
Definitely a movie to watch.
However, I will give this a solid 7/10, it's well deserved.
