All the hallmarks of a classic Hitchcock thriller. The master would certainly approve.

Add "who needs family?," and that's a good indication of how "Harry" dives into - but doesn't easily resolve - a strangely symbiotic muse relationship. Evil can be just as banal as everyday life, an idea explored with nasty wit and not brutish violence.

A chance encounter (or is it) with an old forgettable classmate in a restroom leads to an unforgettable and unwelcome intrusion

Apesar da boa atuação de López, o filme não foge das convenções do gênero, resultando em uma história previsível e, conseqüentemente, enfadonha.
| Original Score: 2/5

Like the best of Hitchcock, Harry captures the lyrical ambiguity of 'normal evil,' the actions we're all capable of committing in the name of a just quest.

creeps under your skin and leaves you uncomfortable for hours. It could be the French answer to "Strangers on a Train" or "The Talented Mr. Ripley"...

The true strength of this thriller is how the duet plays out. The true shock is how casually perverse the underlying message becomes.

Encourages yelling at the screen.

A quiet thriller...with occasional touches of macabre humor and the odd moment of suspense.

The complexity of the plot has to do with the way Michel is changed by Harry.

Moll ... puts a satisfying polish on the standard-issue theme of an innocent whose world is rent asunder by a well-meaning psychotic.

It's Lopez's understated charm in the role that ultimately makes this film as creepy as it is.

It is a frightening tale, but it is done in such a humorous manner that you might not realize how twisted it is until you start making a body count.

This dark comic psychological thrill oozes creepiness from every pore.

There's depth here far beyond the simple framework of Weird Stranger Won't Let Nice Guy Alone.
Robert W. Butler
Kansas City Star
June 15, 2001
The screenplay by Moll and Gilles Marchand is a masterful balancing act between creeping dread and black hilarity.
Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
June 14, 2001
A French language comic thriller terrifically acted and with dramatic devices that are familiar enough but still surprising.
Jack Garner
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
June 8, 2001
A subtle and subversive portrait of a self-assured, ever-smiling and increasingly ominous pyschopath.
Lawrence A. Johnson
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
June 1, 2001
Only fitfully engages its audience.
