  1. A steady undertow of sex gives this French thriller a scintillating surface.
  2. Moll, in only his second feature, evokes a sense of foreboding, playing the routine against the unnerving, the humorous against the sinister, with a wit and deftness that might have impressed Hitchcock.
  3. 88
    The actors and writing lend unexpected dimension to all of the characters, and Lopez's Harry is an indelible antagonist, one who manages to be genuinely big-hearted and evil.
  4. 80
    This is a highly original film blessed with fetching complications all its own and some hair-raising turns of plot.
  5. A startling, suspenseful ride few will forget in a hurry.

    Director Dominik Moll knows how to make a gruesome-free thriller and even manages some dark laughs as he turns the screws.
  7. As murderous amusements go, the film is mildly diverting, but it's like a faint facsimile of a Claude Chabrol film.

    Fanatic perfectionist, control freak; oh for sure this time bomb had several "blow moments"; flavorful taste of hitchcock, king, steiger, argento with a sprinkle of columbo-monk; his every moment was an unyielding descent into complte madness. Expand
