Storyline

The final installment in director Lucas Belvaux's trilogy follows Pascal, a cop who sees a return to credibility in the capture of escaped convict Bruno--who in turn is harbored by Pascal's morphine-addicted wife Agnes. Pascal's already precarious ties to Agnes are strained further when he meets and falls for her fellow schoolteacher friend Cecile. With Pascal focused on Bruno and Cecile, Agnes is forced to find a fix on her own. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Drug culture
26 February 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

In comparison to "An Amazing Couple", this film has a different texture, as it deals with the realities of drug addiction. The director inserts scenes from the previous film, as we get to see why things happened the way they did in the second installment of this trilogy.

It is incredible to think Agnes, very nicely played by Dominique Blanc, has been able to maintain her drug problem for more than 20 years and still keep her job at the local high school where she teaches. Now we know: her husband Pascal, a detective, keeps her supplied with drugs he takes from junkies and dealers. Pascal is Agnes worst enemy because being afraid to lose her, he maintains also a double life; not only does he not help the woman he loves, but breaks the law in the process.

It is even more incredible when we see road blocks where people are checked for possible drug dealing in the school where Agnes teach and where another teacher is interrogated about the drug problem in that particular school. In many ways this film is an eye opening in knowing to what extent drugs are prevalent in today's society, be it in Europe, or the United States.

Some of the material doesn't work very well. There are many unanswered questions in this whole mess. The best thing for the film are Gilbert Melki, as the detective that is willing to break the law and Dominique Blanc, as the tormented Agnes.
