Long and uneventful,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Secret Defense [DVD]  (DVD)
I read the description of this film and thought it would be a good thriller and enjoyable like most other french films I have seen. However, it dragged on and on and nothing much happened. Although there was a storyline, I felt there were many pointless and unnecessary scenes which elongated the film.

I have to agree completely. The most 'suspense' in the whole film was at the beginning when you're wondering who is lurking in the dark in the laboratory. After that, 50% of the film is watching them taking train journeys. You already pretty much know who was involved in the murder of their father, and whilst there's a slight twist in the story, the ending scene was so predictable and 'wooden acting' that it was appalling... if you can even make it that far through the film. I seen many more and better French films than this. Two and a half hours of a story that could have been covered in 30 minutes. I agree with your two stars.
