The Chameleon: The amazing true story of Frédéric Bourdin, who after having plundered all the centers for runaway minors and deliquents in Europe, even thought he has come of age, now passes himself off as Nicholas Barclay, a 13-year-old American who had vanished three years ago. To his astonishment, Nicholas's family welcomes him like their son, leaving Interpol and the FBI aghast. It is the beginning of a race against time for the investigators, family and Bourdin. But who is manipulating whom? And who is Frederic Bourdin in reality?

I watched the Documentary and was surprised to come across this movie. I did enjoy the Documentary more, but this has the theatrical drama that is needed to tell this dark themed emotional script. One time watch

This movie is good, but way off base from the actual true story. The documentary called the Imposter which can be seen here now, is truly an amazing story.

Okay firstly I will get the player info out of the way I used the 1st sockshare selection & it didn't let me down a/v 10/10 Now the movie didn't realize there was a book (thats why I always read comments very usually & informative) which I will google to get info about -I have been looking for the "the imposter" as mentioned by IsabelBex,can not find it aware to watch although I was able to find this which I so wanted to be a renamed version of the documentary, there are conflicting info out there on release dates even on fb page or webpage dedicated to doc shows dates of selected areas of course non near NB Canada like IsabelBex mentioned love to hear feedback on movie - its a rather sad movie as well as "mean" for lack of a better word search in my brains options, mean because of the "act" not wanting to put spoiler out there, sad...well watch it again I don't want to spoil it for the upcoming viewers.Sure hope the super members of this site are able to locate the doc-am excited for others opinions, the book, & yes the doc thanks uploader

This film is intriguing. I'm pretty sure I watched the entire film with a dropped jaw. The fact that it's a true story - that a lost child could return and the family simultaneously doubts and embraces the person, now much older, is terrifying and captivating. I'm so glad I watched it because a documentary about the same family/story, entitled, The Imposter, is about to be released. I was left with so many questions when I finished the film, not because the director left holes- I think he told the story as best he could, but because the situation is absolutely flabbergasting. I'm happy I'll be going into the documentary with a good handle on the story, so I can really pay attention without being sidelined by the mystery and coming revelation. I want to hear what everyone says without the edge of my seat distraction, and I strongly recommend this film to anyone who wants to explore the subject on a less painful, creative non-fiction, linear manner, first.

One messed up story. Even the ending left more questions for me, can't say what they are without it being a spoiler though lol.

So ya telling me that this kid was suppose to be 13, he had more stubble on his face than me and im 41 ffs..This film was all over the place and very far fetched, I guess the book to this film is a lot better..It does make you stay to the end, only to be let down again and make you realise that youve just wasted another 100 mins of ya life. If ya dont watch this then ya certainly havent missed anything..One big fat Mehhh!!! Famke is still hot as ever though ooooh yummy..

Okay, so long as you don't go into this one thinking it's a thriller, you'll be alright. It's more of a drama with a twist. Although the true story says that he didn't have any indications of a motive, there still has to be something missing in a person's life to do something like this and with so much conviction! Pretty good story they told here, I think it may have been more dramatic, though, had they included the two kids that were there as well. Makes me wonder why they didn't. Marc-Andre did a great job!

6.5/10, I was disappointed. This movie had all the elements to be great, good cast/acting, production and it's a true story yet it fell short. The whole time I kept wondering why the FBI lady was sooooooooo invested/doubtful of Nicolas, I kept asking myself why she cared so much if the family wanted to be left alone and he was so passive/non-violent. I also kept asking myself if this guy WAS an imposter, how come he wanted to hang around with depressed empty people, and since they were broke it even made less sense to why he would want to stick around and why the FBI was so worried about it. I dunno the whole thing needed some umph! to it
