VERDICT – 3/5

 

 
PROS –
1) The ghosts of childhood deeds return to a man. As a kid, he deprived his Algerian farmworkers’ son get adopted by his family by fabricating lies about him.
2) The primary theme appears to be anti-racism/pro-immigrant however it’s indeed a solid thriller. The identity of the man who’s sending the tape is never revealed but in the end credits, it’s implied it’s either Majid’s son or Pierrot.

 

 
CONS –
1) The screenplay is slow and there is very little action throughout.

 

 

 

QUOTE –
Georges Laurent: Isn’t it lonely, if you can’t go out?
Georges’s Mom: Why? Are you less lonely because you can sit in the garden? Do you feel less lonely in the metro than at home? Well then! Anyway, I have my family friend… with remote control. Whenever they annoy me, I just shut them up.
