A spiraling descent into fear which begins on a quietly ominous note as family man Michel sets out for his summer home in the countryside with his wife Claire and their three screaming infant daughters. A blistering heat wave and the increasingly cranky children force the family to make a pit stop. In the rest area, Michel bumps into Harry, an old school classmate he doesn't remember, but who seems to remember Michel fondly. Harry, so impressed with Michel when they were younger, even recites from memory a poem Michel wrote as a teenager. Soon, Harry and his voluptuous fiancee, Plum, are… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's Lopez's understated charm in the role that ultimately makes this film as creepy as it is."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"It's a dry, cool character study that's primarily an exercise in tonal control - neither very funny nor very scary, but unnerving in a slow-burn way."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Add "who needs family?," and that's a good indication of how "Harry" dives into - but doesn't easily resolve - a strangely symbiotic muse relationship. Evil can be just as banal as everyday life, an idea explored with nasty wit and not brutish violence."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"Like the best of Hitchcock, Harry captures the lyrical ambiguity of 'normal evil,' the actions we're all capable of committing in the name of a just quest."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"Encourages yelling at the screen."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"An artfully entertaining psychological thriller."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"Unfortunately, the groove it settles into is a lot less interesting than the possibilities suggested earlier."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"A chance encounter (or is it) with an old forgettable classmate in a restroom leads to an unforgettable and unwelcome intrusion"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"creeps under your skin and leaves you uncomfortable for hours. It could be the French answer to "Strangers on a Train" or "The Talented Mr. Ripley"..."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"A quiet thriller...with occasional touches of macabre humor and the odd moment of suspense."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A rocking good entertainment."
‑ Ray Conlogue, Globe and Mail
"Brooding and sardonic in tone and beautifully sustained in its tension."
‑ Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Apesar da boa atuação de López, o filme não foge das convenções do gênero, resultando em uma história previsível e, conseqüentemente, enfadonha."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The true strength of this thriller is how the duet plays out. The true shock is how casually perverse the underlying message becomes."
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
"The complexity of the plot has to do with the way Michel is changed by Harry."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
