User Reviews

Good script but awful acting...
13 August 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

The basic plot is very interesting. it is inspired by a sordid criminal case which happened in France several years ago, when man slaughtered his entire family before disappearing in the thin air. Here Laurent Laffite is OK, but the other acting performances really terrible, especially the Gendarmerie commandant. Laughable at a scale you wonder what kind of crap you are watching, a drama or a comedy. A error on the casting process. Besides this, the overall work is rather ankward, something is missing. The female gendarme is not that convincing. Above all, I still Wonder how the hell a supposed disappearing murderer is able to use his credit card in a cash machine, especially several years after his crime? The best way to be located by the police force !!! An awful mistake in the story? But, I repeat, the basic idea is interesting. Sucha shame.
