    Compelling crime and redemption tale about a lawyer who invents a new life for himself by assuming the identity of another man, but not without complications. Romain Duris gives a strong, fascinating performance that succeeds in creating sympathy for what in other hands might well have been an unlikeable, unredeemable character. Recommended for fans of Patricia Highsmith's "Tom Ripley" novels as well as fans of Romain Duris. Expand

    A decent-enough treat for fans of this particular Gallic genre.

    The Big Picture ends perhaps a bit too ambiguously, but there's something refreshing about its faith in the moviegoer's intelligence.

    The movie feels loose and unpredictable. You're never sure where Paul or the story is going, and while that makes The Big Picture unexpectedly gripping for much of its running time, the shapelessness ultimately wins out.
