As it has already been told above, the scheme here is very close to another movie released last year at the nearly same time: LA VOLANTE, also starring Nathalie Baye, where she played the character, at least an equivalent of Emmanuelle Devos' one here. But the character she offered last year was a victim, whose the son was killed by a hit and run driver and a desperate mother who became herself a murderer, a cold blooded killer. Unlike here where Emmanuelle Devos remains human; and that makes it a drama. Yes this movie I am talking about today remains a drama more than a crime film. I preferred LA VOLANTE. But both actresses, Nathalie Baye and Emmanuelle Devos are convincing enough to keep you entertained.But nothing special besides this.
