Seven years after the tragic murder of his wife () at their lakeside cabin, a Parisian pediatrician () finds himself being reminded of his loss: two more bodies have been found on the adjoining property to where her death occurred, followed by him getting messages in his inbox that purport to be from her. The discovery of the dead bodies reawakens police interest in pointing him out as his wife’s killer, something they suspected but never proved the first time around, and when more bodies start to pile up around the city it only makes him look worse. Pretty soon, Cluzet finds himself at the centre of a Hitchcockian innocent-man-alone conspiracy whose plot keeps thickening at every turn.  (who also appears in a small role) directs a fiercely good thriller that draws you in and never lets you go, boiling up to a terrific chase sequence that rivals anything Jason Bourne ever ran from, and featuring a world-class cast of French talent. , ,and, my personal favourite, as a Chanel No. 5-quality lawyer round out the superb roster in a film whose secrets keep pouring out one by one until the explosively emotional climax.
