Underrated whodunnit gem

A wealthy book publisher locks 9 translators in a bunker to work on the last opus of the series that made his fortune, written by a secretive author that almost no one has seen. As the first pages get leaked to the public, the blackmailer and the publisher engage in a battle of wits where the publisher resorts to harsher and more cruel measures.

I was intrigued by the premise of this whodunnit, but afraid it would fail to entertain. Fortunately, the movie knows when to break its own rules to breathe and explore new directions. The movie starts slow but after about 15 minutes picks up pace and never drops it. The plot has a bagful of twists to entertain you, then as soon as you think it's done there's one more, and one more, then some more for good measure. All in only 1h45min of runtime that will never let you get bored. If every twist is simple and credible enough, the overall plot strains credulity, but no more than a typical movie of the genre. Apart from Lambert Wilson, the actors lack a little in charisma, but there's a refreshing simplicity to their roles and dialogues that makes them likeable. Where the movie is weak in my opinion is how it tries to link various plot elements to the sotry told by the book, which could have worked but feels artificial because the book doesn't have a separate existence. The whole 'translating' twist was a little underused, except in a dazzling scene where unfortunately it ends up making little difference. I watched the movie twice back to back and enjoyed it both times. A solid 8/10.

Agatha Christie meets The Usual Suspects, French style

Terrific contemporary mystery will keep you guessing right up until the very end while entertaining the viewer with great visuals and a superb score. An ensemble cast led by Lambert Wilson gives it their all as the plot twists and turns, mostly set in the underground bunker of a (unseen) Russian billionaire.

As noted in other reviews, if you're a bibliophile then be prepared to add this to your list of favourites.

Spectacular

This one definitely made it to my list of favourite films! Superb acting, smart writing and excellent music! The mystery part is solid: you get glimpses of the resolution, you are given enough clues to make guesses but you will be at the edge of your seat till the last moment! The casting director did an amazing job and the director really took it to the next level! Kudos to everyone involved!!

ps. If you are an avid reader, a lover of books and bookshops or a sucker for literary mysteries you will fall head over heels in love with this movie!!
