When the first ten pages of the top-secret manuscript appear online, the dream job becomes a nightmare - the thief is one of them and the publisher is ready to do whatever it takes to unmask him - or her.
I was very warmly surprised by the nice intrigue of this movie.
Those who like plots like those put in scenes by Night Shyamalan
will appreciate this movie.
The story is complex, and if you see it in original language (French)
you will need to master french enough/well (level 8) recommended.
Otherwise you could miss part of the story resolution...
or you could wait that an English version will be produced (I don't know it is already available).
Story is complex and lot of flashback(s) could make you a little in the fuzzy, but I think it is a deliberate will of the director. In fact this movie is a game between
you (the spectator) and the director.
And when you will get out of the cinema, you will realize the director as played with you and your mind a lot.
It would definitely be a good subject for a American remake, if the translated english version will take time to get out I think.
If you like Night Shyamalan movies, and "Agatha Christie"-like plots, this is definitely a movie for you. You could not see this movie twice the same !
I really spend a nice moment watching it, that's why I put a nine stars !
Enjoy too, feedback (but not spoils) welcome !
