The story of disgraced lawyer Andrew Fraser's rise from a small time lawyer to successfully defending the most infamous criminals this country has ever seen, and his ultimate downfall and imprisonment for five years in maximum security.
We are not far from a very good movie, excellent plot, black ambiance,... but it could have been better. Marseille is barely shown (a pity) and the actors are a bit too acting.
The film starts with a funny touch and then develops into a tragedy... this is often what life brings you.

Unexpected plot really but a treatment which leaves to be desired.
