Storyline

When the French government discloses that a terrorist attack is imminent somewhere in their country, the secret service captain Nathalie is assigned to carry out a counter-terrorism operation. She decides to infiltrate an unknown man in a mosque, but not a trained undercover agent. She goes to the prison in Dunkirk and selects the computer technician Léon to be trained and work for her. In return, he would be released in the end of his mission. Léon gets close to the Pakistani terrorist Bilal, a dangerous and skilled man trained by the French government many years ago, trying to discover his target. Meanwhile, the Pakistan government blackmails the French minister in the question of Cashmere, and Nathalie covers Léon against a betrayal. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not only one of the best laid out political thrillers of the decade
13 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

but a microcosm ---( sp?) tautly directed, acted and beautifully filmed ( from Europe to Pakistan and places in between)--- of the geopolitical ambiguities that will plague this world for decades to come.

Played out exquisitely by the extraordinary Ann Brochet, she reflects with every nuance one face can engender, the uncertainty about her and her overlord's choices about preventing an "islamofascist" terrorist attack in France.

Two points: She is the handler for a man who has no commitment to this endeavor other than to get out of a French prison where he is serving a 12 year term. He has ethnic attributes which make him a plausible mole. For virtually all of the flick she is resolute in her goal to prevent this attack from taking place. However, as she forms a " bond " with her ersatz agent, she does waver ( near end game ) in the tactics her overlords use in handling the operation, and thus, him and herself. The guys in white hats, we realize, have no compunction in engineering " little " betrayals to accomplish their goals---which, after all, are correct and proper. So purely speaking, their white hats aren't as white as idealists ( if there are any of you left out there ).

Second point: the same goes for the "other " side...handlers and agents alike.

These 2 points make for one of the most provocative interplays between good and evil i've seen in quite some time. Make no mistake, there are good and bad guys, here....but not as black and white as some of us might feel comfortable with. So not your typical Clancy plot lines, here.

Finally, re: the other commenter's remarks regarding the final scene with the little boy making his way through the room where the plot is almost finally hatched: it clear and plain how he does it; no mystery there; with all due respect, he or she might have followed that part a little more clearly. I also disagree with her/his perception that Ann Brochet's character went to a home filled with kids and hubby. No indication of that. In fact, to the contrary.

This script could have resembled one of Le Carre novels which never properly received the directorial and acting talent so demonstrative in this flick. Except for the Smiley series that were made years ago, starring the inimitable Alec Guiness as George S.
