Praise

This psychological thriller was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2011 César Awards and is Certified Fresh with an 88% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

It moves, with supple muscularity, toward a twisty and satisfying conclusion.
– Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
This existential thriller is about a person who seeks personal freedom by becoming somebody else.
– Mark Jenkins, NPR
