Advantages: good plot
Disadvantages: sub titles.
I'm not really into foreign movies because I don't speak any other language than English and I'm not really fan of reading subtitles. I had to watch this movie a couple of months ago as part of my course so I had not choice but to read the subtitles. I surprisingly enjoyed it.
The movie is a French and was released in 2006 and directed by Guillaume Canet and comes under the genres of Crime/Drama/Mystery/Thriller. The movie is 2hours and 11 minutes long.
The main character is a doctor Alexandre Beck played by François Cluzet. The plot revolves around him and his wife that was murdered 8 years before by a suspected serial killer. The case is re-opened as bodies where found in the same place as his with then Alexandre becomes the prime suspect. When Alexandre receives an email from his supposedly dead wife he instantly thinks his wife is still alive and sets out on a investigation of his own finding out exactly what really happened to his wife.
The movie is really interesting and has a lot of twists and turns in the plot. There was not a minute of the movie that l was bored as there is so much guessing and assumptions that ran through my mind about the mysterious case of Alexandre's wife.
The movie is in French and I watched it with English sub-titles. The sub-titles where annoying for me because I never watch movies with sub-titles so I wasn't really used to it so It was hard to focus at times. The acting was OK there was nothing really outstanding but I can't really comment fully on it as I missed bit of the acting trying to read the subtitles. There are some parts in the movie where the speaking is fast so lots sub-titles come up quickly but most of the movie is at a good pace so the sub-titles are easy to keep up with. Ben Affleck is rumored to remake the movie in English. I look forward to seeing this as I think it will be better.
The movie itself is a film adaptation of the novel of the same name that was written by American writer Harlen Coben in 2001. The novel made its way to New York Times Best-sellers List and was the first novel of Harlen Corben to make it on their. The book has different names for the characters than the movie which I expected because as the movie is a French adaptation it would obviously have French names to appeal for to their audiences.
I really enjoyed the movie more than I expected and I would recommend it if you good with sub-titles. The movie is rated a 15 which is a suitable age rage as there are murders and a bit of nudity in it. The DVD is available to buy on Amazon new and used from £2.03. I think its worth a look if you can manage to read sub-titles for over 2 hours
Summary: Good movie with interesting plot.
