*** The Big Picture A brooding, opaque French suspense-drama about a Paris lawyer (Romain Duris) who takes the identity of a dead man to get out of his stultifying life. As in the Ripley novels and Antonioni’s “The Passenger,” things get complicated. Based on the 1997 novel by Douglas Kennedy. In French, with subtitles. (114 min., unrated) (Ty Burr)
