Based on the hit novel by Douglas Kennedy, The Big Picture follows Paul (Romain Duris, Heartbreaker, The Beat That My Heart Skipped, L'Auberge Espagnole), who seemingly has it all: a great job at an exclusive law firm, a glamorous wife (Marina Foïs) and two wonderful sons. But his perfect life unexpectedly falls apart disastrously, and he finds himself on the run, starting over with a new identity in scenic, isolated Montenegro. In his new life he begins to build the existence he once dreamed of in his youth and discovers what might be the opportunity to redeem himself. The suspenseful plot features intriguing characters and lots of unpredictable twists. Also starring Catherine Deneuve and Niels Arestrup. Directed and co-written by Eric Lartigau.
