One of the most compelling thrillers I've seen in a long time. Now fifteen years old, I do not believe this film has dated by a single second. It is also a love story, full of emotional tension and confusion. A visit to a jeweler provides a metaphor of three rings, leading to an ever-tightening mystery. Who is trying to outwit whom?
The relentless pace is fuelled by subtly sneaky action and the alternating distractions of Monica Bellucci, Romane Bohringer and Sandrine Kimberlain. Bewildered, triply love-struck Max (Vincent Cassel) has only the slenderest chance of piecing together the clues while untangling his emotions.
The plot twists and turns with break-neck speed, pirouetting around each of the female leads. Filled with delicious tension, this is a real treat which demands repeated viewing. Do not miss it!
