Witty and smart, some great acting by the Professor, with an unexpected ending..... This is a film where language is used beautifully and you must pay attention and get engrossed in it
to capture the satire behind it -

Funny and smart. Enjoyed very much.

Something a bit different. A fairly captivating way of telling a story that keeps the viewer on the same wavelength as those in the film and therefore you discover the plot and its reasons at the same time.

The movie's description makes it sound like a thriller, which is misleading. Suspenseful, but only in the sense that one wonders what is going to happen next. A quirky comedy, with slightly creepy characters. Very French, with an intellectual component to its satire. Fans of Woody Allen will enjoy this film.

Unique way of telling a story. Hoped for a better ending.

Enjoyed the actors--they did a great job. The story was unpleasant though. I had varying sympathy for the young man but slowly you were led to a strange place where it was difficult to see fact from fiction. It was the kind of movie that I liked after it was over and I could appreciate what it did and how it did it. But I didn't enjoy the movie as it went.
