The Prey (La Proie)
NOT AVAILABLE ANYMORE TO STREAM ON NETFLIX. NOW AVAILABLE ON NETFLIX DVD. If you need your fix on action-thriller film, turn on The Prey, the French response to the classic American film The Fugitive.
Franck Adrien (Albert Dupontel) is one unlucky man : A serial killer and rapist kidnapped his daughter and threatens to kill her. On top of that, that same serial killer left enough clues to the police to lead them to think that Franck is behind a dozen of murders.
Here is how starts a manhunt for the poor Franck, as he’s trying to save his daughter and to not get caught by the police at the same time.
The Prey is a thriller full of twists, of drama, and from time to time of crude violence. Yes, there are a few implausible events, but it is definitely an upgrade from your classic CSI, Bones and NCIS episode. Not to the mention the film uses pretty well some beautiful landscapes of France’s countryside.
