The Big Picture

Rated NR 114 minutes 2010

Romain Duris plays Paul, a French lawyer with a disinterested wife (Marina Fois), a couple of kids, and an opportunity to take over his firm. He has success, but not happiness, and things are about to get a lot unhappier. The movie, directed by Eric Lartigau doesn’t present much that feels original, but Duris makes the viewing worthwhile. As his character’s predicament worsens, he changes faces until being near unrecognizable by film’s end. The very ending feels like a bit of a cop-out, but the events leading up to that end are absorbing. I know, I’m being vague, but I don’t want to give too much away. Just know that it’s a film worth seeing, especially for the Duris performance. Catherine Deneuve shows up for a bit role, and it’s always good to have her around.
