Anthony Zimmer

Who is Anthony Zimmer? The new film from screenwriter Jérôme Salle, who makes his directorial debut on this picture, is named after a man that we will not see for most (if any) of this mystery’s fast-paced 90 minutes. The mystery of Anthony Zimmer is just that: who is he? The police, led by a stern-looking Akkerman (Sami Frey), know that he is one of the world’s biggest money launderers but they would not know him from Adam if he stood in front of them. Zimmer almost continuously undergoes aesthetic surgery and often has his vocal cords operated on to change his voice. Akkerman has one lead: Chiara Manzoni (a positively sexy Sophie Marceau) the beautiful woman who is Zimmer’s weak spot and whom, the police suspect, he will try to contact again sooner or later.
