This explosive action thriller, starring Eric Cantona, has a sting in its tail.
When Sophie Malaterre (Karine Vanasse Midnight in Paris, Pan Am) is introduced to SWITCH.COM by a new friend, she thinks the holiday-home swapping website will be the perfect way to liven up a dull summer. But soon after she arrives at her new apartment in Paris, she realises she made the biggest mistake of her life.
A murdered man is found in the guest bedroom, and when Detective Forgeat (Eric Cantona Looking for Eric, Elizabeth) takes Sophie in for questioning - she finds out she hasn t just swapped houses, she s switched identities.
In an attempt to prove her innocence, she goes on the run and it s up to Detective Forgeat to find Sophie before she too turns up dead. 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
The film centers around Sophie Malaterre (Karine Vanasse) who switches homes for vacation with a stranger online. She then moves from Montreal to Paris where things go fatally wrong. She is then pursued by Detective Damien Forgeat (Eric Cantona).
I was not keen at all with this movie as I was made to believe Mr. Cantona was the lead actor. Ended up watching it due to the persistence of a fellow movie-goer. First shock Cantona was not the lead actor and the second shock was he performed alright. The surprise was that the feature was very enjoyable.
It's fast-paced, tense, and has plenty of twists and turns.
The main star Karine Vanasse who deserved to be on the front of the DVD cover puts in a solid performance and carry's the movie.
The direction by Frédéric Schoendoerffer deserves an applaud for making the film exciting until the end. The only criticism is the climax, which was abrupt and just far-fetched. The production values are also quite expensive.
To finish things off, an impressive french offering that satisfies.
'Switch' is a worthy thriller.

Excellent film with a dark twist. Eric Cantona is very good. Great French film which is better for us in French rather than dubbed with silly voices.Published on 18 April 2013 by Mr. Steve
The Switch is a very tense and action packed move; however during the fist half, is difficult to accept all the coincidences. Read morePublished on 3 April 2013 by Alejandro Bisio
