Christopher Null Filmcritic.com far too intent on capturing the minutaie of the trio's crime to make this a compelling movie Rated: 3/5 Jul 17, 2005 Full Review Jules Brenner Cinema Signals Lovely Marie Gillain exploits her turn in the spotlight as truly voyeuristic bait. But, the story is mindless, the concept adolescent, the pacing feverishly repetitious. Rated: 2/5 Jul 11, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member A modern, ambiguous "anti-thriller" Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member ... de la retrospectiva en la Berlinale! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Very violent and unlike most movies didn't like any of the main characters. I thought it was very interesting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Based on true events happened in France. Not impressive overall however. Was it really from 1995... didn't look like it at all. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Tavernier films never sound good on paper, but they're always worth seeing. This is no exception. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member excellent film qui montre violence et brutalité humaine avec élégance... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
