Movie Info

When the wife of a high-ranking government official begins experiencing chilling visions that are somehow tied to a series of murders around Paris, her fate becomes intricately tied with that of the two police officers investigating the gruesome crimes in this horror-flavored thriller from the producer of The Professional and starring Jean Reno. Anna Heymes' (Arly Jover) memory is failing, and her dreams are plagued by unspeakable images of murder. Meanwhile, in the Turkish district of Paris, upstanding police officer Nerteaux (Jocelyn Quivrin) and his questionably motivated partner, Schiffer (Reno), investigate the savage murder of three clandestine Turkish laborers. As the investigating officers uncover an important clue implicating the Turkish mafia in the crimes, Anna awakens to discover that her appearance has been drastically altered by a mysterious plastic surgeon. As the link between Anna and the Turkish murder victims slowly comes into focus, the truth about her nightmarish past sets into motion a terrifying sequence of events. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

...isn't nearly as much fun as one imagines it's supposed to be.

The only way to make this film any worse is to listen to the dubbed version, which turns Reno's deep growl into a lilting voice that wouldn't be out of place on an episode of Friends.

Stylish and scary.

Jean Reno's cool as a retired tough-attitude detective and this film is great, white-knuckled thriller in the tradition of The Bourne Identity and Memento.
