For fans of the police genre and to play to discover enigmas.
Watching this film by Régis Roinsard, which has gone from comedy in his debut film, Populaire, to thriller in this second film, you can see how immense and vigorous the shadow of Agatha Christie remains. More in these times when new versions of his best-known novels are made or, as in Daggers from the back, his style is updated. The Translators does not draw on any of his stories, but brings together his basic ingredients. A promising approach, a mystery to be solved and a large group of suspects locked in a large house. The production design is attractive and the work of the actors, impeccable. Its main handicap is that almost nothing is known about some characters, and the plot becomes a labyrinth that slows down the action and the rhythm. If, however, the clues that Roinsard has left from the beginning are followed, the most experienced viewers in this genre will guess who he is to blame before he is revealed on the screen. The most cinephiles will identify the nod to The French Connetion in the flashback that revolves around the subway car.
