But things don't go to plan and, when the body count starts piling up, Forgeat finds himself getting in over his head and operating outside of the law in a bid to save Sophie and hunt down the real killer. ...Switch (2011)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb film! 10 April 2012
By Dan B
Format:DVD
If you like French films, I think this one hits the spot.

I was dubious about Eric Cantona in a film, but he does a pretty good job all told, but for me the real star
of the show is Karine (Pan-Am) Vanasse.

It's the first film performance I have seen her in, and it's a superb one from beginning to end, it's a slowish scene setting beginning, but soon the action and tension begins, and grips you throughout the entire film.

Plenty of chase scenes mostly on foot, and plenty of dramatic almost '24' style shock scenes.

Well worth a watch, and am so pleased I bought this now, can't recommend it enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great all round film. 29 April 2012
By ChrisB
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What a smashing film. Nothing sloppy and Cantona can certainly still run.He looks good too.. Top marks all round. Soon forgot I was reading subtitles. When I'd finished watching it I thought about watching it again straight away! Really got lost in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars ooh aah Great Film 8 May 2012
By Clive B
Format:DVD
I received this film as a gift and was a bit dubious because it was my first foreign language film, and I had not seen Eric in an acting role. However, all that was soon put to one side as the film developed.
The film builds wonderfully. Karine Vanasse is superb and Eric has proved himself as a very decent actor in my opinion.
The action takes off and is non-stop right to the end. The subtitles were unobtrusive and easy to follow. Just a great film and a brilliant plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good effort 19 Mar 2014
By Richard
Format:DVD
Ive gotta be honest, the main reason I chose to watch this was because Eric Cantona was in it, make of that what you will.

It turned out to be a good little French crime thriller with a few twists and turns. The synopsis reads like the Diaz/Winslet flick "The Holiday" - a woman in Montreal (Karine Vanasse) bored with life switches apartments with a woman in an awesome spot in the centre of Paris. As its a crime thriller this doesnt go quite as swimmingly for our heroine as it did for Cameron and Kate. Karine becomes implicated in some nefarious wrong doings in Paris, Monsieur Cantona then enters the fray as the detective attempting to get to the bottome of whats actually going on. To say more would ruin some of the surprises. The plot races along after the scene is quickly set and the end reveal is well put together.

All in all a decent little euro thriller. Cantona is in good brooding, chain smoking form but the film belongs to Karine Vanasse with a spirited, all action, emotional performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars KARINE VANNASSE SUPERB! 4 Feb 2014
By pedro
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I LOVED ERIC CANTONA (THE PLAYER)AND WANT HIM TO DO WELL IN HIS FILMS.HE LOOKS VERY GOOD ON CAMERA AND ON THE MOVE AND THAT INCLUDES HIS USE OF DIALOGUE HE'S NOT OUT OF PLACE.BUT HIS PROBLEM IS WHEN HE STANDS AROUND HE LOOKS VERY AWKWARD AND HIS STANCE AND USE OF ARMS NEVER FIND THE RIGHT COMFORTABLE POSITION.IN THE OFFICE HE TURNS LIKE HE HAD JUST LOBBED SOME UNSUSPECTING KEEPER, (WHEN HE PUTS UP HIS COLLAR AND OPENS IS ARMS TO HIS TEAMATES)! AND AFTER A WHILE I WANTED HIM TO START DANCING TO THE BIRDY SONG JUST TO LOOSEN UP! KARINE VANASSE ON THE OTHER HAND IS THE REAL DEAL AND SHE IS THE REASON WHY THIS FILM IS WORTH A WATCH.ITS GOT SOME GREAT ACTION AND I WAS ROOTING FOR THE GIRL.THE STORY CONFUSED ME A BIT TOWARDS THE END, BUT THATS BECAUSE I'M SLOW!!!!!!!! STILL FOR THE PRICE ITS NOT BAD AT ALL.FROM AMAZON UK.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well acted and directed...but very, very silly 18 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
Poor old Eric Cantona! Apparently lots of potential buyers have been put off this DVD because of the cover, but let me tell you this, Cantona actually puts in a nicely understated performance. He's not the problem in this film though. It's the utterly ludicrous script that spoils what could otherwise have been an excellent action thriller. On the plus points, the lead actress puts in a superb effort (although the film never explains why a struggling artist has the skills of a CIA agent), and most of the cast are good actors. There are also some very good action scenes, and a memorable foot chase through the suburbs of Paris.

Apart from an excellent start, and an intriguing premise, the film quickly descends into a brainless chase movie, with some truly ridiculous scenes (the mother with the shotgun being one of the most stupid), and any number of coincidences unexplained. Worse than all that, though, is the motive of the killer, which is completely incredible. The ending will leave you scratching your head. I have no problem with the suspension of disbelief, but there has to be some credibility, otherwise you end up laughing, like I did. It's a real shame, because the film is well directed, there is an excellent cast, included the much maligned Cantona, and with a credible script and screenplay, it could have (and should have) been a rock solid thriller. It is simply too far fetched for my tastes.
