Taut, compelling and very creepy thriller based on a Georges Simenon novel about an insurance salesman (Jean-Pierre Darroussin) and his lawyer wife (Carole Bouquet) traveling on the highway to pick up their children from camp. Their bickering leads the wife to abandon her increasingly inebriated husband who then gives a lift to a man (Vincent Deniard) who may be a dangerous wanted fugitive. Director Cedric Kahn maintains an unnervingly desolate and unsettling mood while Darroussin gives a brilliant performance as the emotionally wrecked husband, making this as much an incisive character study as a superior suspense film. Subtitles. A smattering of crude language and two violent episodes. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
