Storyline

Iris, the statuesque dark-haired wife of the wealthy Parisian banker, Antoine Doriot, vanishes into thin air while the latter settles the bill at an elegant restaurant downtown. Furthermore, things will take a turn for the worse, when only a few hours later, much to his surprise, Antoine will receive a disturbing call from a merciless kidnapper demanding half a million euros in ransom in exchange for his abducted wife. As a result, under police surveillance, Antoine will follow to the letter the kidnapper's instructions with the intention to deliver the money, nevertheless, nothing will go as planned. By now, not much is making sense, while the helpless Iris is still missing. What has really happened to her? Written by Nick Riganas

interesting despite some holes
6 September 2017 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

I won't go into all the holes in "In the Shadow of Iris," a French film from 2016. They are well covered in a preceding review.

Romain Duris stars as the beleaguered Max, who comes under suspicion when the wife of a businessman disappears, apparently kidnapped.

I won't say anything else about the plot. Have you seen it before? Yes, but others in the same ilk were nowhere near as confusing. The flashbacks seem way out of sequence. It all comes together in the end, though.

Charlotte LeBon is gorgeous with a figure to die for and we do see a lot of it. This movie is French, so there is sex, including S&M all over the place.

Most of the drama comes from Duris, and he's excellent. The rest of the cast is good: Jalil Lespert, Camille Cotin, Adele Bencherif, and Helene Barbry.

Strange and dark, it will remind you somewhat of Hitchcock. But he was easier to follow.
