From the producer of The Professional and The Fifth Element and starring Jean Reno (The Professional) this intense horror/thriller finds a woman suffering from nightmares and bouts of amnesia mysteriously tied to a series of gruesome murders around Paris. Anna Heymes (Arly Jover), the wife of a senior government official, is experiencing the loss of memory and terrifying hallucinations. In the Turkish neighborhood of Paris, two police officers, Nerteaux (Jocelyn Quivrin) and Schiffer (Reno), are trying to solve the mystery of the sadistic murders of three women, all clandestine Turkish laborers. While the upright Nerteaux is determined to stop the killings, Schiffer is a dirty cop whose real goals are more questionable. In the course of the investigation, they discover that an armed branch of the Turkish mafia might be responsible for the murders. At the same time, Anna learns that her face has been transformed by plastic surgery, leaving nothing of her previous appearance. The link between Anna and the three victims becomes ever more clear as Anna's horrible past is progressively revealed to her, to Nerteaux, and to Schiffer.
Fun Artistic Thriller
Sort of a cross between a female Bourne, Vampire horror and international intrigue. I had fun watching this movie, it was a great price and worth watching. Jean Reno is superb.
