Review

The big question from this week’s episode of the tense French adaptation of Harlan Coben’s novel is: why are characters in dramas always so suspicious when people’s phones go to voicemail? That happens when a shady gangster tries calling Eva (Virginie Ledoyen). Though he seems entirely unconnected to the disappearance of Eva’s husband, Daniel, he is linked to her mysterious accident at “the concert in the catacombs”, which we learn more about in flashbacks.

Otherwise, there’s little clarity on what is going on – new leads pop up all over the place — but the plot drives on efficiently and ruthlessly, much like the impassive killer haunting Eva’s suburban neighbourhood.

Summary

Determined to find her husband, Eva visits Bastien's estranged family to see if they might recognise anyone in the photo. They don't, but Bastien's sister tells her that Bastien has deliberately disappeared before. At Bastien's workplace, a colleague gives her an envelope that contains a key for a studio Bastien rents in Montmartre. On arrival there, Eva is confronted with a woman who looks strangely familiar. Soon Eva's own past is catching up with her, while it becomes apparent that Bastien is in real danger. Thriller, starring Virginie Ledoyen. In French.
