A seasoned biographer is persuaded to help former British Prime Minister Adam Lang finish his memoirs on a remote island after the ghostwriter who was initially hired drowned in unexplained circumstances. No sooner has the new ghostwriter accepted the lucrative assignment than strange things happen to him. Soon it becomes apparent that Lang's involvement in the second Iraq war is central to the story - and that some powerful people will do anything to keep certain details in the ex-prime minister's biography under wraps.

Kaum einer kann alle Spielarten der Bedrohung so inszenieren wie Roman Polanski, die winzigen Unsicherheiten, die ein Weltbild ins Wanken bringen. Er blickt der Paranoia ins Herz. [...] [E]in perfekter Thriller und ein kluges Politstück gleichermaßen. (Auszug)

Susan Vahabzadeh

The Ghost-Writer est le meilleur Polanski depuis bien longtemps. Un suspens politique où la force classique de la mise en scène (sobre, élégante) se marie à l'intelligence d'un script brillant et au travail impeccable des acteurs.

Gaël Golhen

Invitation à interpréter quantité de signes et d'indices, The Ghost Writer est donc un film de pure mise en scène. Un régal d'ambiguïté, d'ironie trouble, d'angoisse dif­fuse.

Louis Guichard
