Fast cars, hot girls, great action and good acting - what's not to like?
4 December 2014 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

A French-Canadian action film... I wasn't too hopefully going in but have learnt not to judge a film on a nation's industry, and this one was a damn good surprise!

An underground car racer meets the love of his life whilst recovering from a crash in hospital and even though she's suffering from a terminal heart disease, he won't give up on her.

That's the premise, and from that we're taken on one heck of a ride as the lead - a fantastic performer I'll have to keep an eye out for - too stubborn or perhaps stronger than most of us will ever be, does anything and everything he can to keep his true love alive.

I won't delve more into the plot, because the way the film unfolds, doing so would be to spoil it somewhat, but if you're after a film that can keep you on the edge of your seat with adrenaline rushes AND drama, you could do a hell of a lot worse than to give this little Canadian flick a viewing.

Recommended.
