Not so good movie by Robert Lepage about a guy who's girlfriend is dead. He's got to take the lie detector (polygraphe) test but the results are inconclusive.

The movie is not very convincing with maybe one too many twist in the plot. The acting is not very inspiring also. In all, a very average movie.

Out of 100, I gave it 72.
