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

It's a dry, cool character study that's primarily an exercise in tonal control - neither very funny nor very scary, but unnerving in a slow-burn way.

Unfortunately, the groove it settles into is a lot less interesting than the possibilities suggested earlier.
May 3, 2001
Brooding and sardonic in tone and beautifully sustained in its tension.
April 27, 2001
Very funny, in that morbid sort of way that makes you laugh even as you shudder with horror.

A film Alfred Hitchcock might have considered a good start.
April 27, 2001
Anybody so inclined can connect the dots, and they lead not only to the weirdly seductive Robert Walker in Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train but to the sudden, luminous interiors of Kubrick's The Shining, with their air of unreality.

Movies like this are more intriguing than thrillers where the heroes and villains wear name tags.

A sleek little poison pill of a movie that throws a psychopath into the midst of a frazzled family and artfully tightens the screws.

Rises instantly above its genre merely by taking the time to develop its characters and scenario.
April 26, 2001
Cannily borrows from the master in weaving a deviously twisted and surprisingly subtle tale of its own.

Harry is an indelible antagonist, one who manages to be genuinely big-hearted and evil.

The actors are excellent.
April 20, 2001
Set within his petit bourgeois universe, Harry is eminently believable, a character whose largesse is as seductive as his personality is not. And whose concept of friendship is the raw ore of nightmares.
April 20, 2001
A smart, enjoyably unsettling, Hitchockian psychological thriller from France.
April 20, 2001
Suspenseful and delightfully creepy.

A quiet delight.

Reasonably nifty.
February 7, 2001
Moll masterfully weaves together Hitchcockian thriller elements and brainy comedy to create an original film that's never less than surprising.
