Editorial Reviews

Original French Version with English Subtitles-------------- In Paris, the international police force and the Russian mafia are chasing Anthony Zimmer, an intelligent man responsible for laundry of dirty money in France. Zimmer had extensive plastic surgery, and his new face and voice are completely unknown. The only means to reach Zimmer is through his beloved mistress Chiara, who is under surveillance of the police and the mobsters. While traveling by train to the country nearby Nice, the common man François Taillandier, who has the same body shape of Zimmer, is select by Chiara as if he were Zimmer and used as a bait to lure those that are pursuing her. When Taillandier is chased by the professional Russian killers, he runs the French police when the real situation begins to be disclosed to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Caper/Romance film March 9, 2007
Format:DVD
Beautiful film. A really enjoyable 1 1/2 hour movie with just the right balance between caper and romance elements. Not overlong and overblown like so many movies today. Sophie Marceau is incandescent. On the cusp of middle age, she looks terrific and projects both toughness and vulnerability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good January 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A 2005 French film currently having the typical American remake and due for release in 2011, it is also akin to Johnnie Depps "The Tourist". I really enjoyed this Hitchcockian thriller, where the story is most important and the acting albeit top notch from the gorgeous Sophie Marceau and Yvan Attal, and the wonderful scenery combine to make an enjoyable film.
I can see why a lot of people have given this a negative vote, as when I say it is Hitchcockian in style, I also mean that it is rather 1950's feel as well, the leading actors use a lot a facial nuances, there is no gore (but the sound effects especially the guns are excellent) and the injuries sustained by the actors seem real enough for me.
The bad news is that you are unlikely to see it anywhere as the film is now very rare on the DVD market on both sides of the Atlantic, but if you can find it online it is well worth a watch!

3.0 out of 5 stars Etrangers dans un train? October 11, 2009
Format:DVD
Jerome Salle's Anthony Zimmer is the kind of glossy widescreen French thriller that usually gets a wider release outside its native shores, but it seems that was ruled out when a US studio picked up the remake rights: currently the only English-friendly DVD release is from Australia. It's no more than a shaggy dog story filmed with a lot of style in beautiful locations where the sun always shines and everyone travels and stays first class, but at a tight hour-and-a-half it doesn't outstay its welcome or give you too much time to think about the not-really-that-surprising final twist. The setup is certainly a good one - with international money launderer Anthony Zimmer fresh from the plastic surgeon, the only one who might be able to identify him is girlfriend Sophie Marceau. But with both the police and the Russian mafia after him he doesn't make their meeting but leaves her a message to chat up a suitable candidate on the train to Cannes to act as a decoy while he makes his getaway. Naturally, newly divorced, on-a-budget tourist Yvan Attal can't believe his luck when a beautiful woman chats him up and invites her to stay with him in her suite at the Carlton Hotel - until she pops out for an hour and the Russians pop round with silencers...

From there on it's the odd chase punctuated by the odd double-cross en route to a not that surprising but not unsatisfying finale, and it's easy to see the attraction for Hollywood: it's a goodlooking, undemanding entertainment with good performances from the leads and good enough support from Sami Frey's pursuing flic to make the potentially unintentionally comic cliché never-changes-his-expression stereotype play far more convincingly than it deserves.

Great reverse psychology thriller that'll throw you for a loop. Refreshing intelligent thriller without the obligatory sex scenes, car chases and bomb blast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great thriller/romance movie with european flavour December 17, 2010
By Marina
Format:DVD
Sophie Marceau excellent as the musterious film noir diva. Yvan Attal's looks perfect for the role of the naive unsuspected victim who falls for the dark mysterious woman until he decides to take the situation in his hands. Satisfing ending.

Yvan Attal's character was sexy and smart. I was thrilled with the ending. I watched it twice. The sound track is moving and emotional.
