L'homme qui voulait vivre sa vie

Romain Duris is mesmerizing.
-Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph
Taut and highly original?one of the edgiest films you'll see all year.
-David Edwards, The Mirror
Thriller existentiel haletant à la mise en scène élégante et qui doit beaucoup à l'intensité du jeu de Romain Duris
-Metro
avec l'intensité de ses regards, Romain Duris porte jusqu'au dernier plan la perte d'identité de son personnage, le poids de la peur d'un homme et l'épaisseur de son mystère
-Elle

Synopsis

Paul Exben is a success story - partner in one of Paris's most exclusive law firms, big salary, big house, glamorous wife and two sons straight out of a Gap catalogue. But when he finds out that Sarah, his wife, is cheating on him with Greg Kremer, a local photographer, a rush of blood provokes Paul into a fatal error. Standing over the corpse of his wife's lover, Paul knows that his perfect life has gone for good. But by assuming the dead man's identity and fleeing for an isolated part of former Yugoslavia on the beautiful Adriatic coast, Paul gets another shot at being himself and, at last, seeing the big picture.
