Gus (played by Guillaume Canet) suffers from narcolepsy. He falls asleep all the time and has dreams about supermen from comics (Van Damme would play one of these supermen, a short & secret appearance).
A group of french tourists are surrended by some kind of a balkanic war... They have to live this together. The two heroes are a 13 years old couple. Gérard Jugnot cheated on Victoria Abril (can you imagine that ?), the war experience will help to strengthen their love (pfff...). The hotel manager (Jean-Pierre Cassel) is gay and tries to hide his love affair with a bad singer. Valérie Lemercier, a secretary, tries to hide her whole life failure. etc., etc. : all these people will have to deal with fear and tensions... Some will suddenly become very brave, some not... That part is badly written, but the plot idea is quite good : balkanic wars happened a few miles from the western europe, in the place where people uses to go to holidays... There was something good to do with that. The movie is not absolutely bad. Most actors are good, there is a few poetic or clever scenes and the conclusion (don't understand nothing to this war, only thing to do is to escape) is terrible but interesting.
