From his offices in Switzerland, Russian Igor Lipovsky is engaged in a vast and profitable gunrunning operation with Africa. The French government wants to hinder the activities of the arms dealer and sends a team to sink one of his ships heading for Angola with a load of illegal weaponry. Lisa, Brisseau, Loïc, Tony and Raymond are professionals: they carefully set up their cover, plan all their moves meticulously, and carry out orders without asking questions. Perhaps they should. The code-name of the mission is "Janus"; and just like with the ancient deity, there are two opposite faces for every aspect of the operation: the objective of the French government, the role of each team member, the presumed friend and the assumed foe...

Interesting French /Spanish co-production about a tough team of spies carrying out a risked mission when they are double-crossed
2 June 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This moving film has suspense , tension , emotion , wild fighting images , mystery , car crashes and a little bit of violence . From his offices in Switzerland, Russian Igor Lipovsky (Avedikian) is an arms dealer engaged in a huge and profitable gunrunning operation with a special load whose destination results to be Angola . The French government wants to hinder the activities of Igor and sends an outfit to sink one of his ships heading for Africa with a shipping of illegal weaponry . Lisa (Monica Bellucci) , Brisseau (Vincent Cassell) , Loïc (Ludovic Schoendoerffer , brother's son) , Tony (Eric Savin) and Raymond (Sergio Peris Mencheta) are professional spies under command of Colonel Grasset (André Dussollier) to proceed the dark operation . But moles threaten to foil a team of secret agents' plan . The code-name of the assignment is "Janus" ; and just like with the ancient deity , as they have to pull off a dangerous mission to sink the general cargo vessel "Anita Hans" in Casablanca . After that , they are betrayed by other spies (Najwa Nimri) , then Lisa is detained and Brisseau attempts to free her , but the events go wrong .

This thrilling movie deals with an expert team of spies , but no in James Bond style , as they are secret agents that carry out their assignments in realist as well as methodical manners . Exciting as well as surprising screenplay by Jean Cosmos , Ludovic Schoendoerffer and the same filmmaker Frederic Schoendoerffer . Although the picture has various ingredients for entertainment , the plot is some confused and complex and filled with plot twists . This enjoyable picture contains action , thrills , intrigue , car pursuits , struggles , including a violent fight between Vincent Cassell and his nemesis Najwa Nimri . The first part of the movie takes inspiration of the Rainbow Warrior case that has been slightly adapted ; events are transposed in Casablanca and the sabotaged boat carries weapons instead of environmental militants . Very good duo protagonist , Vincent Cassell , an actor with endless energy , but Vincent is also a family man with 2 children and married to Monica Bellucci, his Italian co-star . For professional reasons, Vincent lives mostly in Paris while his Italian-born wife, Monica Bellucci, lives mostly in London . However , they have been separated in 2013 . Despite this , they have appeared in the following films together : Sheitan (2006), Secret agents (2004), Irreversible (2002), Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001), Mediterranees (1999), Le Plaisir (1998), Compromis (1998), Dobermann (1997), Come Mi Vuoi (1997) and Flash-back (1996). The star studded support cast is important with known international actors , most of them French people such as André Dussollier as Colonel Grasset , Charles Berling as Eugène , Bruno Todeschini , Eric Savin as Tony , Gabrielle Lazure as Véronique Lipovsky as well as good Spanish actors such as Sergio Peris-Mencheta as Raymond , Najwa Nimri as Maria Menendez and Simon Andreu as lawyer .

Sensitive as well as touching musical score by Bruno Coulais . Colorful and evocative cinematography by Jean Pierre Sauvaire . The motion picture produced by Spanish producers : Ricardo Garcia/Francisco Ramos/Miguel Menendez and French ones : Eric Neve/Porchet/Latif Lahlou was well directed by Frédéric Schoendoerffer , son of also filmmaker Pierre Schoendoerffer , an expert on war movies . He was born in 1962 in France, he is a director and assistant director, known for Switch (2011) , Trunds (2007) , Scènes de crimes (2000) and especially this Secret agents (2004) . Rating : 6,5/10 . Well worth watching .
