A man’s marriage is crumbling as his wife treats him in the worst possible of ways -- he wants a divorce. One day, as she rushes out to meet somebody else, one fateful accident changes it all for both of them. Eurochannel premieres The Perfect Stranger, a French thriller about the strange coincidences and deadly consequences of betrayal.
The Perfect Stranger follows the drastic changes in Jonathan’s life, a miserable man who lives on giving therapeutic massages to rich ladies. His wretchedness goes further because of an unhappy marriage – his wife, Anaïs, doesn’t waste any chance to remind him of how unhappy she is by his side.
The only option seems to be a divorce… until Jonathan discovers a multi-million inheritance and Anaïs has an unlikely accident. Once he gets to the clinic, the woman in the hospital bed is not Anaïs but a stranger with identity papers confirming she is his wife… Where’s is the real Anaïs?
Adapted from a novel by the French duo of novelists, Boileau-Narcejac, this psychological thriller delivers a flawless murder mystery in which women are at the core. Somebody is after Jonathan’s fortune. He’s a millionaire now - the more careful he is, the greater the danger to him!
Eurochannel invites you to feel the thrill of Jonathan, a man who passes from extreme misery, to joy and suspicion, as those in his life attempt to deprive him of the only chance he has for real happiness.
