Director: Fred Cavayé
Starring: Diane Kruger, Vincent Lindon
Nightmare thriller about a happily married couple whose life is shattered when one is falsely accused of murder. After his beautiful wife, Lisa (Diane Kruger) is arrested for murder, literature professor; Julien’s (Vincent Lindon) grasp on his family becomes more and more tenuous. As Lisa’s health deteriorates in prison she begins to lose her will to live. Julien refuses to accept the destruction of their lives and plans desperate measures. Well structured narrative in classic Hitchcock, style, beautifully filmed in various parts of Paris and suburbs. Performances are par excellent in this suspenseful drama which sees the innocence of Lindon’s character challenged as the audience is left guessing as to her true nature of Lisa’s involvement in the original crime. Well worth seeing and catch it before the American remake, The Next Three Days (starring Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks and directed by Paul Haggis) is released in 2011.
