Tonight, Alex, a very busy, stressed-out exécutive, has got a date with a young unknown woman on internet ; but this meeting plunge him into a vicious downward spiral and throw his life off-course forever.
Firstly, I am a fan of French cinema, but this movies is one great exception. The film seriously lacks verisimilitude. The other problem is that I am never convinced by French, "gangster" movies. Their language is far too poetic and flowery, and there manner gentile and restrained and in this film they are just not convincing at all. There is something just not right in the acting that conveys either fear, menace or any kind of terror in these characters. They would be more at home preparing dinner to a restaurant full of connoisseurs. At one point in the movie I expected Inspector Clouseau to turn up on the scene and it might then have made some kind of sense. The last problem with this movie, is that there is no explanation or resolution. Why these evens took place. What was the motivation of the man that ordered this farcical treatment of a man he doesn't even know? All in all it just doesn't work.
