Director: Alice Winocour
This is one of those great, slow-burning movies that slipped under the radar (at least here in the United States). It’s part character study and part suspense drama, but the end result is a very satisfying cinematic experience. Lead actor Matthias Schoenaerts is a great actor whom I’ve admired for a long time; he deserves to be a big star and I hope he continues on the trajectory he’s on. To get an idea of just how good he can be, you should check out the great horror film Left Bank (2008) and the drama Bullhead (2011).
