I was expecting a thriller.What a disappointment!The screenplay is so muddled it's hard to follow the plot.Almost all the lines deal with sex ,dirty words abound,which is boring in the long run.No actor stands out:Chiara Mastroianni is as cold as ice and her monotonous portrayal does not help;to enliven things a bit ,she flashes her tits.Jackie Berroyer as the libidinous superintendent gives a Johnny-one-note performance.American Seymour Cassel as a painter hams it up all along the way and,had I to watch that again (God preserve me) ,I would skip all his scenes.Benoit Cohen is not John Cassavetes .

The third of the dialog is in English with subtitles .

Aspirin needed afterward.
