Storyline

This is not the way it was supposed to happen. Like every other morning, Christian Echeveria, huissier, should have been able to levy his daily distress in this Parisian suburb, before going back to his comfortable home. But that's not what destiny had planned for him, as he'll get to understand it when Salem Atelhadj, 17, takes him a hostage, under his father's desperate eyes, in the tower's twelfth floor which will soon be surrounded by policemen and anti-terrorists squads. Written by Amélie Vrla

Nice French cop comedy.
12 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

OK companion piece to the also appealing SKIRT DAY, with Roth's Gendarmes busting the run down public housing flat, where bailiff Giradot is conducting an eviction.

When the confusion settles, Girardot has been taken hostage by teenage dope peddler Saïdi, over the objections of his dad Fellag, and the SWAT team is on the way, over the objections of the police commander who had 1400 cars burned the last time.

Farcical complications and suspense take the piece in unexpected directions.

Subdued colour and convincing location work.
