      Gripping, fast moving thriller. Best seen with the other parts of the trilogy.

      Audience Member Génial. Ce sont pas trois films qui raconte une histoire, c'est une histoire filmé 3 fois. Ça se coupe, ça se recoupe et surtout ça se découpe. Les opinions sur certains personnages changent d'un film à l'autre, des personnages qui passent de protagoniste à secondaire: j'insiste, c'est génial. Et pris séparément? Oui c'est possible de n'en voir qu'un des trois: comme c'est possible de manger un éclair au chocolat sans toucher au chocolat... ;-) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member L'un des trois volets de la "Trilogie" (avec "Un couple epatant"et "Apres la vie") ou le cineaste change de point de vue et de genre pour raconter les destins croises de quelques personnages. Ici, au premier plan, Lucas Belvaux et Catherine Frot. "Cavale" est ainsi un suspense. Tonalites noires pour suivre la fuite d'un homme traque, seul contre tous. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The first movie in the Trilogy is a kind of an old-fashioned movie build up around this lone revolutionary who escapes from prison into a world that has changed. You expect more tension from a movie of this kind nowadays, but the acting is good and so is the story. The plot could have used a spark. Having not seen the two other film yet, I can only review this as an isolated film. Catherine Frot is an outstanding actress. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Un trilogie epatante, trois facons de percevoir les faits. Et des acteurs qui jouent tres bien. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Cavale is the first part of an interesting trilogy. Belgian director Lucas Belvaux has made three movies from three different genres with same cast. First one tells about a terrorist who escapes from a prison and plans a new attack. Although movie has a slow start the excitement gets tenser towards ending. However, something is missing and movie is easily forgottable but still good onetime entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member You will find it's amazing when you saw all of the trilogy. This part is the funniest one.
