  • It's a taut, observant thriller that tries to find out why the moth is drawn to the proverbial -- and potentially deadly -- flame.

  • Practically a remake of Claude Chabrol's Le Boucher (1969), Entre ses mains makes a certain number of irritating commercial concessions.

  • The thrills, alas, are few and far between, and the psychological element is too hard to believe.
