Storyline

A plane explodes above the Gulf of Guinea. An escort girl is murdered in a Parisian park. Thousands of miles separate these two events, and yet Nora Chahyd, believes there's a connection between them, much to his superiors chagrin. As Nora investigates, getting dangerously close to the powers that be, the murders and betrayals accumulate, and signs point to a state affair at the heart of it all. Written by Anonymous

An exciting political thriller.

I was not surprised by this film. I expected that. No more no less. I love french political thrillers; better than American ones, which are always politically correct, with bad guys vs goods guys scheme, good happy endings, and useless love stories between lead characters.

It's very difficult to summarize such a movie. Nearly every body is crooked, corrupted, fierce and ruthless. No warmth between them, except some no said friendship. I could describe that as a sort of a hank of stories, where every one wants to get rid of another. It's very well described, edited and acted. Frémont is terrific as a ruthless hired killer. The female cop - an Arab - gives also here a powerful performance.

Action sequences are brutal, bloody, very percussive, and talkative ones useful for a good understanding of this captivating tale.

As SECRET DEFENSE, I commented last year, it shows how politicians are rotten and ordinary people expendable.

A little masterpiece. A real gem.
