An effective thriller on the ravages of doubt
24 May 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

First of all, we waited more than a year for the release of this Belgian film in the French flicks. Why? Mystery! Anyway, this film is well built and excellently interpreted. After the introductory scene, the audience is immediately in empathy with David, a rather nice individual who seems happy and fulfilled. Then, the director Samuel Tilman plays with his audience, blowing hot and cold, creating doubt: the investigation highlighting a part of shadow in David, his entourage will gradually but ineluctably ostracize him. Is he a monster guilty of murder or a guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time? The answer is within your favorite movie theater!
