Product Description

French thriller written and directed by Jérôme Salle. Notorious international money launderer Anthony Zimmer is a wanted man. Hunted by police forces all over the world, he now has the Russian mafia on his tail too. Unfortunately for the cops, Zimmer has had so much plastic surgery in order to evade capture, that no-one knows what he now looks or even sounds like. Knowing that Zimmer will try to get in touch with his mistress, Chiara (Sophie Marceau), police official Akerman (Sami Frey) has her followed to try and flush him out into the open. On the train to Nice, and with the police in hot pursuit, Chiara lures fellow passenger Francois Taillandier (Yvan Attal) with the promise of a shared bed. Waking to find his companion gone, and with Russian hitmen and the police on his trail, Francois's nightmare is only just beginning.

Synopsis

François and Chiara meet each other by chance on a train to Nice. She uses her beauty and charm to gain his affections. But he is unaware that Chiara is in fact the beloved mistress of the wanted criminal Anthony Zimmer, and she is being followed by the police. Chiara uses
the unsuspecting François as a decoy to try and lose her police tail, culminating in a frantic chase through Nice and a question: Just who is
Anthony Zimmer?

Jerome Salle's Anthony Zimmer follows a hapless holidaymaker who becomes the target of group of criminals looking to draw attention away from their boss (the titular Zimmer) who has recently undergone plastic surgery and is lying low in an attempt to evade capture by the authorities. The film was later remade by German director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck as The Tourist in 2010 and that film starred Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.

Great story and refreshingly different.
Much better than the American rewrite.
Need to watch it more than once to really understand the direction its taking.
Pity train travel isn't really like that.

Format: DVD
Jerome Salle's Anthony Zimmer is the kind of glossy widescreen French thriller that usually gets a wider release outside its native shores, but it seems that was ruled out when a US studio picked up the remake rights: it's only in the wake of the Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie remake The Tourist that it's got much of a DVD release in the English-speaking world. It's no more than a shaggy dog story filmed with a lot of style in beautiful locations where the sun always shines and everyone travels and stays first class, but at a tight hour-and-a-half it doesn't outstay its welcome or give you too much time to think about the not-really-that-surprising final twist. The setup is certainly a good one - with international money launderer Anthony Zimmer fresh from the plastic surgeon, the only one who might be able to identify him is girlfriend Sophie Marceau. But with both the police and the Russian mafia after him he doesn't make their meeting but leaves her a message to chat up a suitable candidate on the train to Cannes to act as a decoy while he makes his getaway. Naturally, newly divorced, on-a-budget tourist Yvan Attal can't believe his luck when a beautiful woman chats him up and invites her to stay with him in her suite at the Carlton Hotel - until she pops out for an hour and the Russians pop round with silencers...

From there on it's the odd chase punctuated by the odd double-cross en route to a not that surprising but not unsatisfying finale, and it's easy to see the attraction for Hollywood: it's a goodlooking, undemanding entertainment with good performances from the leads and good enough support from Sami Frey's pursuing flic to make the potentially unintentionally comic cliché never-changes-his-expression stereotype play far more convincingly than it deserves.

Not the best film I've ever seen but compared to the mess the US made of the remake (The Tourist), it's a diamond.

A favourite of our movie-going club, the original Anthony Zimmer is well paced, excellently cast and plotted. Sophie and Yves do credit to the script and there are enough twists and turns to keep the audience engaged. One to watch again and again.

I have been putting off buying this film for two years now, I seen the trailer on you tube when I was looking for films with Sophie Marceau in it and this Anthony Zimmer came up.

All I can say is for a French film is as good as it gets.
