The Snake (Le serpent) (2006)
A ruthless gang led by private detective Joseph Plender is extorting rich people and famous fashion photographer Vincent Mandel seems the next victim. He is married to Hélène, daughter of one of the richest people in Europe, but not quite happily. In fact the marriage is on the brink of a divorce and a judge is deciding who will take the two children. Can Hélène take them to Germany or will they stay with Vincent? Vincent has a lot on his mind and he improvises when model Sofia Kippiani comes to his studio, but his makeup crew doesn't show up. Before he knows it, he is accused of a rape. Things go worse and worse for Vincent, he sees his entire life slipping away and, most importantly, he might lose his children. But why does his former schoolmate Joseph Plender seek contact with Vincent and even solve a nasty problem for him? Does Plender want something more than money?
Vincent Mandel (Yvan Attal), fotograf și tată de familie, vede cum viața i se duce de râpă. Nu numai că este în prag de divorț, dar un fost coleg de facultate, Joseph Plender, pune la cale un plan care-l aruncă pe Vincent în infern. Crimă, răpire și șantaj, toate îi sunt puse în cârcă fotografului, iar acestuia nu-i mai rămâne decât o speranță: să-l învingă pe Plender în propriul său joc.
