Storyline

Lenny arrives in Paris with a plan: to set up a small sting operation and then flee the scene as quickly and as far away as possible. Juliette can no longer bear Joel, her boss and lover, and fearsome drug trafficker. She lays a trap for Lenny, but quickly regrets her action and returns the money she has stolen from him. Unfortunately, she picks up the wrong briefcase, full of valuable but hard-to-dispose of merchandise, and incurs Joel's wrath. But Juliette isn't one to stand around, waiting for the worst to happen. With the help of the somewhat clinging but resolute Lenny, she hatches a plan to double-cross everyone and disappear with the money. Despite their best efforts, the unlikely couple soon find themselves initiated into the violent and murky underworld of drug traffickers and their clients. They begin to grow closer...

brisk B thriller
18 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

The title of this highly charged little detective comedy means: "the sky belongs to us" and finds its illustration in the very last sequence which sees Lenny (Melvil Poupaud) and Juliette (Romane Bohringer) under the stars. All what came before is carefree, playful stuff from Graham Guit whose main influence was Quentin Tarantino's cinema in his cinematographic approach and writing. The director and his scenarist Eric Névé manage to shroud their work with a constantly fanciful tone and consequently, it's a film that doesn't take itself seriously. It even goes the opposite of what we mostly find in these type of stories. For example, the love affair between the two heroes is rather given a rough ride by the scenarists. In short, the unexpected is the prevailing rule in the treatment of the story and the actors all have a freewheeling acting and seem to amuse themselves as much as we do.

The quoted epithets to deem Guit's effort will turn to his disadvantage in his next effort: "les Kidnappeurs" (1998).
