French Thriller - The Big Picture

I've belatedly heard about The Big Picture, a French thriller based on a novel by Douglas Kennedy. Nowhere in Birmingham is currently showing it so I may have to wait for the DVD.

Paul Exben is a success story – a great job, a glamorous wife and two wonderful sons. Except that this is not the life he has been dreaming of. A moment of madness is going to change his life, forcing him to assume a new identity that will enable him to live his life fully…

The Big Picture, an adaptation of the novel by Douglas Kennedy, is directed by Eric Lartigau and stars Romain Duris, Marina Foïs, Niels Arestrup and Catherine Deneuve.

The trailer is 2 minutes long and it doesn't appear to give too much away!

Ive had my eye on this film as I enjoyed the book a lot which I read when it first came out a while back. The author wrote two good thrillers and then switched to more literary novels, he also reviews a lot in the newspapers.
