Excellent polar inversé (Critique)

Ici, le drame est d'autant plus honteux et criminel que le crime est perpétré par la police. Et comme on peut s'y attendre, la honte s'étend à l'ensemble du corps policier local et fédéral, puisque l'enquête est particulièrement superficielle et on sent les préjugés comme les conflits d'intérêts qui amènent nos enquêteurs à conclure la version la plus facile pour eux. L'accord rapide et facile des gens sur cette version fait froid dans le dos. Et le cas du pauvre homme piégé par la policière et tué froidement pour sauver la réputation et la tranquillité de celle-ci jette un doute sérieux sur la fiabilité de cette police et du système judiciaire. Scénario fort, réalisation bien menée, très bon jeu des acteurs, très naturel. Le message est dur, mais le film est bon.

The acting was okay. The plot was predictable and I'm glad I did not pay for this. Not worth my time as I fast forwarded it. Really slow. But would have worked if it was 1985!!!

A great psychological thriller. It is very suspenseful with great acting. One of the best movies I've seen in years. I highly recommend it.

Ecellent script and performances (Review)

Have you ever stood by helplessly while a situation spun wildly out of control, only to wonder later how it happened? That is exactly the predicament in which a French businessman, played by Laurent Lucas, who portrays a man engaged in computing probabilities, finds himself. His own life expectancy is 82 years old. He takes this as a certainty.
Alexis Bledel, who plays Kate Logan , a rookie police officer in a small American town, mistakes Lucas as a fugitive and pulls her pistol on him as he sits in his car outside a convenience store where both have gone for coffee. When she realizes her mistake she is apologetic, but as the day goes on she begins to worry that should the man complain, she just may lose her job.
And thus initiates a chain of events in which she returns to apologize again, which begins an encounter with the Frenchman, each step taking him further and further from the world he took for granted. At the same time Officer Logan becomes more and more entrapped in a situation of her own making, which must now be undone. But who will pay the cost to save her career?
Tersely filmed and directed, this film explores the seemingly harmless lines we sometimes cross, and the consequences which those actions ultimately have on those around us; and ourselves. Ecellent script and performances make this film one not to be missed.
