Georges (Daniel Auteuil) and Anne (Juliette Binoche) live the perfect life of modern comfort and security in modern day Paris. They have a teenage son and Georges hosts a popular literary review television program while Anne works in publishing. One day they start receiving packages on their doorstep that contain video surveillance footage shot secretly from their street, accompanied by disturbing drawings. Georges and Anne's idyll is shattered.

As more tapes and images arrive and become increasingly personal, Georges launches into an investigation of his own as to who could be imposing this terror upon him and his family. As he delves deeper, secrets from his past are revealed, and the walls of security he and Anne have built around themselves begin to crumble.

  • This is scary a film that anyone who says "i have nothing to hide" should watch

  • I kept watching to the end hoping that there would be a point to it but there wasn't.

  • A disturbing, "get inside your body" type French thriller with two of the best French actors and good French cinema with an unsatisfying ending. Definitely worth a watch.

  • I actually didn't enjoy watching this movie, and gave it a low rating. But days and perhaps weeks after I couldn't stop thinking about it. Like those jokes that take a while to hit you this movie crawls inside your brain and doesn't let go. A highly recommended experience.

  • Expected too much from a movie with two great French actors… I failed to grasp the necessity to make the family suffer gradually, yet it did not ‘destroy’ the family, it modestly ‘distressed’ the family. The intention, as though, was simply to make Georges (played by Daniel Auteuil) “aware” of what he has done in his early childhood. A revenge on something that child did not realise it was such a big deal to someone. The last clue in the end did not surprise me, but annoyed me a little that they didn’t elaborate on it. This was not a thriller where in the end one scene shows the real culprit and where people go “Ohhhhhh!!” We needed to get in the mind of two sons more in order to understand and be able to justify what they did, I think… A big fan of European movies but felt like the film left way too much legroom for audience to ponder or perhaps it was like “Da Vinci Code”, the movie – cut so much out and lost many people along the way.
