A Web of Deception: Who You Think I Am

2024-04-22

“Who You Think I Am,” originally titled “Celle que vous croyez” (The One You Think You Are), is a French-Belgian drama with a captivating premise. Juliette Binoche delivers a powerful performance as Claire, a heartbroken teacher who takes a drastic step – creating a fake Facebook profile of a young woman named Clara – to spy on her ex-lover Ludo through his friend Alex.

This isn’t your typical catfish story. Director Safy Nebbou delves deeper, exploring the complexities of loneliness, self-deception, and the narratives we construct in relationships. As Claire becomes entangled in a web of online connections with Alex, the film raises questions about identity, human connection in the digital age, and the blurred lines between truth and illusion.

Binoche is mesmerizing as the conflicted Claire, capturing her vulnerability and desperation with nuance. The supporting cast, including François Civil as the unsuspecting Alex, provides excellent counterpoints.

“Who You Think I Am” is a slow burn, but the suspense builds steadily. While some might find the pacing deliberate, it allows for a deeper exploration of Claire’s motivations and the emotional fallout of her actions. The film doesn’t shy away from the uncomfortable consequences of Claire’s choices, making it a thought-provoking watch.

If you’re looking for a fast-paced thriller, this might not be it. But for those who appreciate a character-driven drama that delves into the complexities of human connection, “Who You Think I Am” is a rewarding film.
