Everything changes the day Simon, his partner, is murdered by a group of thugs. Forced to deal with them himself, Maxime asks his brothers for help as they are used to small-time felonies. But their interference is a fiasco, and Maxime and his family's situation becomes more and more inextricable... Written by
In the movie,Maxime (François Cluzet) epitomizes the French dream: a very successful car dealer,he's just been awarded a prize,he lives in a desirable mansion and his wife is so attractive all people around envy him.
But his associate was doing very bad things behind his back and when he gets killed by gangsters ,his cozy world collapses.But as such is often the case,if we are to believe the screenwriters,a quiet chic well-respected man can turn overnight into a formidable Rambo,able to wield a weapon as a sniper.
The script is abysmal and we feel sorry for Cluzet whose part is really beneath him.The highlight ,so to speak,is a chase in the snowy forests of Finland (?).
