Storyline

I am a civil servant at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. My boss, Loupiac, is having an affair with my wife. I can't take it any longer. I accepted this mission to escape the situation. 'Humanitarian Attaché': I have to take a young clandestine back to his country. He belongs to the tribe of the Grey Men of Irguiz, secluded since prehistoric times in a secret city of the Great Atlas. The kid is amazing. I suspect that his identity papers are fake, that he probably made up this legend. But to believe him is the best way to return him to his home, and it makes me feel good. The power of a legend is unbelievable, once you've decided to believe in it... Being with the kid makes me rediscover life, revive my dreams. And Valérie, the guide he talked me into employing, is about to become the biggest love of my life. Real life now begins... Written by Aline

fun movie, interesting location
6 April 2002 | by (San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

Caught this movie on plane from Paris to U.S., perhaps not the best time to judge a movie. But, I thoroughly enjoyed the rather offbeat premise. Far from finding the movie predictable, I was constantly surprised by the direction of the plot and the development of the characters, all of whom I cared for deeply by the end of the movie. The setting, in the Atlas Mountains, is stunning.
