Storyline

The police force decides to raid a crack house in the Hochelaga/Maisonneuve district of Montreal. A SWAT team enters the premises followed by a cameraman filming for a reality TV show about police officers; they're confident that this is a routine operation and all the suspects will be arrested without trouble. To their surprise the junkies are equally as armed as they are and a shoot-out ensues. In the mayhem the police are forced to retreat quickly but the cameraman and two officers, one seriously wounded, are left behind and taken hostage. Back-up arrives, the building is completely surrounded and snipers are put into place. Negotiations are attempted in vain for the release of the hostages. During the next 36 hours, supplies for the junkies run low and pressure runs high. During that time they force the cameraman to record their version of things. Written by pr1mal_1

Morin really got me...
20 October 2001 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

Very provocative director Morin really got me with this one. For 1 hour and 27 minutes, I thought that this was real... I was shocked, very disturbed and afraid. But when I saw the killing of the policeman for a second time, near the end, I said to myself : oh oh! That's the big error of the film... One viewer said it's like a Blair Witch film. I think it gets further... Are these people really comedians? They're all very incredible! There are no full names in the titles. I'd like to know who is the young woman playing Mado... She's amazing! I saw that movie on television, very lately. I had it now on tape, but I don't think I will never live it the way I did the first time. Brrrrr...
