Comedy/ THriller/ Drama Black comedy, thriller and psychological study at the same time. A very good movie.
Dominik Moll's mischievous, unsettling take on the 'home invasion'/stalker thriller is an object lesson in the perils of keeping up with old acquaintances. Sergi Lopez is chillingly affable as Harry, a man who just wants to do right by his old schoolmate Michel - played by Laurent Lucas, currently French cinema's prime specialist in highly-strung Everyman types out of their depth. Brisk, Hitchcockian and bracingly fiendish.
