Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Marion Cotillard just gets better and better in everything she does!

Fantastic performance by Matthias Schoenaerts whom I haven't seen before.

If you like well thought out films, that put you in difficult situations, then this is for you.

Ali is a guy with no real skills other than street smarts, he arrives in Antibes from Belgium: no money, and a 5-year-old son to take care of, he stays with his sister and her husband... He starts working nights fitting security cameras, and ends up getting involved in bar knuckle fighting for money. Now flush with some money he meets Stephanie at a night club, gives her his number as he likes her, doesn't hear from her and carries on with his new life. Stephanie meanwhile gets hurt in an accident in her job, where she performs with killer whales. Fighting depression from her injuries (not going to spoil the plot too much here) she finds his number and calls him, they embark on a passionate love affair.

They are not a match made in heaven... And stopping here, all I can say is that the acting is superb, this is a film, that stays in your head far longer than most hollywood films. I really enjoyed this film! Not an easy film to sell to the masses, but well worth watching!
