Very good commercial film that doesn't look French indeed!
4 April 2009 | by (Capital, Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

If you think this is another tale of "two different cops who end up being best friends in 90'" think again.

As a thriller, it definitely entertains. Its characters, although stereotyped, are not unbelievable. Patrick Bruel is fine as a young brash cadet, but Patrick Bruel steals the show. He barely speaks, moves very little, with an economy of movements that shows self-mastery.

Sociologically, it's interesting how both share close ties with family, tradition and religion. Unlike their "secularized" French partners, they have ties with both the modern and the pre modern world.

While not pretending to be a "deep" film, it surely entertains. Claude Brasseur is fine as an "enmerdeur" boss. Corinne Dacla is a great "Iddishe mamme", good natured but nostalgic, possessive but loving. Corinne Dacla's got good legs. Cinematography is good, if a bit "for export". Like the 80's music.

It looks like a Sly Stallone movie but is definitely better (and I do like Sly).

Enjoy without pretence.
