Devil's advocate.

Don't wait for anything awesome in this story about the rise and fall of a budding young lawyer involved with the mob. Nothing at all. I won't say that everything is predictable, but this topic has been seen a billion times before. And the ending too. The editing could remind us Brian De Palma's CARLITO'S WAY, but that's all.

Benoit Magimel is although adequate in the crooked counselor character

  • But not so crooked after all, after he is aware of the criminal
activities he has to deal with.

Concerning Gilbert Melki, he is very good too in the big boss character.

In resume, a good time waster, and forgettable too.
