Plot Summary

Paul Exben (Romain Duris, Russian Dolls, Paris) is a handsome and successful Parisian lawyer with a beautiful wife, two children, and a glimmering future in the firm he co-owns with his mentor, Anne (Catherine Deneuve). But behind this deceptively perfect façade lies a restless spirit who’s uncomfortable in his conformist life and envies the freedom of his neighbor Greg, an uncompromising photojournalist. After Greg’s unexpected death throws his life into chaos, Paul embarks on a cross-continent odyssey of self-discovery and reinvention, leading him to uncover the answer to the question: is it possible to become someone else? With Hitchcockian precision and echoes of Patricia Highsmith’s Tom Ripley, director Eric Lartigau (The Players, I Do) explores the themes of identity and creativity through one man’s gripping journey from Paris and Brittany to Montenegro and points beyond, crafting a suspenseful thriller about the dangers that persist even after one engineers the ultimate fresh start.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If some of the plot details defy credibility, Romain Duris's electrifying performance makes you overlook any inconsistencies, as his likable character becomes a man on the run barely able to stifle his panic. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Oct 11, 2012

Fresh: For most of the film, Lartigau creates the tension of a Hitchcockian thriller solely through Paul's interior struggle ... – Chris Packham, Village Voice, Oct 9, 2012

Fresh: This existential thriller is about a person who seeks personal freedom by becoming somebody else. – Mark Jenkins, NPR, Oct 11, 2012

Fresh: Takes familiar material - involving a violent crime and an assumed identity - and nudges it just enough to keep us interested for most of the ride. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov 21, 2012

Nice hidden gem

Had no clue this was coming out. Glad I rented it! Great movie with a psychological twist to it. It is mostly I. French, but has parts with English too. It's very much worth reading subtitles. Kind of reminds me of the talented Mr. Rippley, but less creepy and less evil.
