Director Gilles Mimounis first feature film is a stylish suspense thriller that confounds the audience while presenting them with an extraordinary and elusive mystery. Vincent Cassel stars as Max, a former playboy who has decided to settle down by marrying his current love, Muriel. However, during a business trip, Max catches a glimpse of the great lost love of his life, reviving his wanderlust and sending him off on a chase of the elusive Lisa, whom he had overheard suggesting to a friend that her lover, Daniel, had killed someone for her. Soon, Max is trying to unravel the mystery behind the suspicious death of Daniels wife, which he hopes will lead him closer to Lisa. Mimounis deft direction and impeccable visual sense, along with his many nods to Alfred Hitchcock, make this a hugely enjoyable thriller.
