Adapted from Douglas Kennedy's international bestseller, The Big Picture stars Romain Duris, Niels Arestrup, Marina Foïs and Catherine Deneuve. Paul Exben is a success story – a great job, a glamorous wife and two wonderful sons. Except that this is not the life he has been dreaming of. A moment of madness is going to change his life, forcing him to assume a new identity that will enable him to live his life fully… Shot in Paris, Brittany and Montenegro, The Big picture stars Romain Duris (The Beat That my Heart Skipped) as Paul, the hotshot lawyer who flees a fatal accident to protect his sons and by chance becomes the man he always wanted to be. The prestigious cast also includes Oscar nominee Catherine Deneuve (A Christmas Tale), two time Cesar award-winner Niels Arestrup (The prophet) and rising star Marina Foïs (Change of plans). Written and directed by Eric Lartigau (I Do - 3.5 million admissions France), the movie is adapted from Douglas Kennedy's bestselling thriller that has been translated into over twenty languages.
