Film review – Eric Cantona stars in Switch
Eric Cantona was always a philosophical player. The former football superstar shows off his acting skills again, this time as Detective Forgeat in Switch, an explosive action thriller where everyone is a suspect.
Sophie Malaterre (Karine Vanasse) is fed up, with no work, no friends and no boyfriends on the horizon. When an acquaintance tells her about the holiday house swapping website Switch.com, Sophie jumps at the chance to stay in an apartment in Paris.
But soon after she arrives, she realises nothing is what it seems. After a murdered man is found in her bedroom, she escapes the police and goes on the run to prove her innocence.
It’s up to Detective Forgeat to find Sophie before she, too, turns up dead. But things don’t go to plan and Forgeat finds himself getting in over his head and operating outside of the law in a bid to save Sophie and hunt down the real killer.
‘Switch’ is available on DVD and Blu-ray from April 9.
