Storyline

Two unemployed computer technicians discover 2 million euros next to a dead body in a field of windmills. The money that they find deepens their pre-existing dominator-dominated relationship. The next day, a young blind girl is found dead near the site of the discovery and it seems that the stolen money had been intended to pay her ransom. Another child is then kidnapped and the police carry out an investigation, in particular a young sergeant who is fascinated by the tragic event. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Solid thriller
27 March 2013 | by markokristicSee all my reviews

As already noticed by other reviewers, this a french "homagge" to "Silence of the lambs", to make things perfectly clear one of the main characters in the film even picks up the Thomas Harris book. It has its problems: pacing is uneven, some scenes drag quite a bit and there are some holes in the plot but when everything is added this is a pretty solid effort whit some interesting ideas and great, lyrical ending. Actors are all very good, even in the smallest of parts(the zoo owner was great). Directon is stylish and camera work impressive at times. Although the script isn't all that original it does elaborate some great twists and psychological insight. It merits one viewing, 7/10.
