The days before and after the disappearance of a lady, seen through the eyes of five people.

Nice, well-developed plot, with many unexpected twists and surprises. It remains a matter of guessing the perpetrator and motive until the end.

Additional pluses are the setting - snowy landscapes somewhere in the Massif Central - and the actors. The three names mentioned above already have quite a track record; I saw Damien Bonnard a few weeks ago in Les Misérables.

Still this: I enjoyed this, but...: the improbabilities and coincidences in the story, I can imagine that some of the viewers will be turned off by that.
Marion who manages to find Evelyne somewhere in Pluto's lair;
Michel finding Armand in a city of millions;
Joseph who feels good about corpses;
Marion's crazy crush after one night of sleeping together;

these are just a few of many...
I personally see that more as a comic input; especially at the very last scene, when everything comes full circle.

Also a good one: at one point you see a guy pleasuring himself behind his laptop. The actor also sees his name mentioned in the credits, as 'Le type qui masturbe'. His minute of fame...

A wonderful mosaic film in which the separate plots are connected and, above all, influence each other. The biggest plus is the strong plot and excellent editing work. When characters themselves are confused and draw wrong conclusions, then it becomes really fun.

The setting there and the surroundings are also fine. Nice trip to Senegal where phishing is also brought to your attention. With Valeria Bruno Tedeschi, always nice to see them again.

I really thought this was a wonderful French film with very good performances. The film is simply about a huge problem that is only going to get worse.

The danger of the internet, especially to extract money from simple, gullible people.

In Belgium there was also a case of someone who approached people with a false profile, but they just had to take their pants off.....
