You'll have to indulge us. We're sort of smitten with French actor Romain Duris (Heartbreaker, The Beat That My Heart Skipped), so anything he's in will find a place on our radar. For The Big Picture, Eric Lartigau's adaptation of Douglas Kennedy's novel, Duris plays Paul, a corporate lawyer and family-man living an unfulfilling existence in Paris. Following an frenzied accident, Paul is given the opportunity to assume a new identity and explore a life as an artist. Duris delivers an intense performance in this thriller, which also sees the terminally exquisite Catherine Deneuve playing a small role as Paul's boss/mentor.
