Mr. Devereaux is a powerful man. A man who handles billions of dollars every day. A man who controls the economic fate of nations. A man driven by a frenzied and unbridled sexual hunger. A man who dreams of saving the world and who cannot save himself. A terrified man. A lost man. Watch him fall.
A sheep in wolves clothing!

A young Adonis he ain't but full marks to Gerard Depardieu in his middle years for unashamedly exposing himself as a man with an unrequited sex drive. The first part of the movie appears to lend itself to soft porn. This depicts his character and sets the scene for the ensuing trauma that enters his life through an act performed on an unwilling individual. The acting from GD is faultless and there appears to be quite a lot of ad lib dialogue throughout. The best movie GD has done for a quite while. Although he plays what on the surface appears to be an obnoxious individual, he has an underlying charisma and I was enthralled.
