Flawed subtitles, you better learn French forstqBy Chantal (1124 reviews) from London , 10 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a great film, the acting is brilliant specially from Michel, the dialogs are clever and witty, the plot is very interesting.
I am French so I had the chance to be able to enjoy this film without having to read subtitles. But you know how it goes, you inevitably read a couple here and there and, omg, whoever did the translation had no clue about French pass school level.

A frivolous little japeBy Savage (632 reviews) from London, England , 05 Apr 2008Apparently this was Chabrol's fiftieth film (has even he watched them all?), and it finds him in uncharacteristically flippant form, turning in a film which succeeds pretty well as an entertainment, but which is also surprisingly hollow. The initial con trick seems bleakly believable, and there's something almost reassuring about a hierarchy of fraudsters, including the father-and-daughter (?) pair here, each of whom knows their own place. The drama which the writer-director tries to elicit when these two overreach themselves, into an altogether more high-flying world, never really comes, not least because we never quite believe it. Serrault and Huppert nearly carry it off, but there are too many contrivances, too many unlikely coincidences for it to work properly.
And, as another person on this page has pointed out, the subtitling is not good. This is becoming a bit of a regular complaint as far as I'm concerned, but whoever was responsible for it has made absolutely no attempt to replicate the playful sense of humour that exists between the central pair, so every time that one of the other characters comments upon it, non-French speakers will be left scratching their heads. Not translating it also robs the film of much of its joy.
Stylish but disappointingBy a customer from PLYMOUTH , 21 Mar 2008looked good , sounded good with good actors
but ultimately the plot lets the movie down. It
just needed something a bit more gripping in
order to make it work.
Great film full to twistsBy a customer from kent, england , 23 Jan 2008Great film, quite amusing, full of twists, some you can guess some leave you guessing. Well acted, great scenery. Really loved this
Promised a Lot!By garibaldi (2 reviews) from stockport , 03 Jan 2008We watched it all the way through hoping it would get better, but unfortunately it didn't!.
However, I feel it deserves an average rating.
Another Chabrol gemBy stephen campbell from Guildford , 31 Jul 2007With the passing of Antonioni and Bergman surley its time to revaluate Chabrols body of work?
With over 50 films made this being his 50th and only a few real duds in his canon.
Many of his films are seldom seen which is a shame because he was a part of The French New Wave so his work in my view is just as important as Godards or Truffauts.
iF You want to get into his work then Start with Le Boucher.
This film is pretty good too but if you like your Thrillers to be fast paced then try some of Chabrols other work first to get a feel for it here
