Gregory Lioubov, a Russian secret service officer, is sent to Monaco to keep an eye on powerful businessman Ivan Rostovsky. For the purposes of this mission, his team recruits financier Alice as an undercover agent, but when Gregory suspects her disloyalty, he commits the cardinal sin of getting in touch. An impossible passion arises between them, which will inexorably lead to their demise. Director Eric Rochant and a stellar cast, including Jean Dujardin, Cécile De France and Tim Roth, transcend the spy movie genre, folding this thriller into an explosive love story colored in no small measure by the best of Alfred Hitchcock.
