If there would be anything to complain about (apart from the rather silly ending), it would be that first-timer Salle makes the film fly by almost too fast.

Audience Reviews for Anthony Zimmer

½

Effective low-key thriller enhanced by short bursts of tensely gripping action. Greatly superior to the limp American remake " The Tourist ", make sure you see this one first to avoid the same anger I relived because the major surprise had already been spoiled. Even worse, that movie only survived by cheating with its characters' behavior, while "Anthony Zimmer" makes more logical sense while planting some shrewd clues. Admittedly that one features a ravishing Angelina Jolie, but an enticingly enigmatic Sophie Marceau doesn't get seated at the table by the kitchen door either.

A perfectly decent romantic thriller with twists and turns that are as uninteresting as possible because they are so similar to twists we've all seen in movies before. Sophie Marceau is great, although her role is massively cheapened by the last 20 minutes of the film as all her power is basically taken away from her. Despite a well shot chase scene toward the beginning of the film, the rest plays out like a third rate James Bond movie.

"That man over there... I think I saw him on the train. And? Maybe he's following us. I think you're right. You do? You should be a mystery writer." A very stylish, elegant thriller. Great cast with Yvan Attal and the very beautiful and seductive Sophie Marceau. Great score by Frederic Talgorn.
