France sure know how to make a good thriller. After recently seeing Point Blank I read about this movie on someone else’s blog (sorry I can’t remember who it was, but I follow so many). Since it also starred François Cluzet, who I really loved in The Intouchables (which you really should see immediately if you can) I had to check it out. So is it any good?
At the beginning of the movie we see Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) enjoying some time off together with his wife at the spot they seem to have been visiting since their youth. After some skinny dipping and lovemaking they get into an argument, she leaves and seems to disappear. Alexandre is knocked out and later hears that his wife has been murdered. Forward 8 years and he suddenly starts receiving mysterious emails which seem to indicate she might still be alive. He is completely obsessed by it and decides to try to find out the truth.
Now this is a great thriller, which just keeps on adding little twists to the story. It has a great cast and tells it all in a compelling way. If you like a good thriller this is one you should check out.
