From Belgium, here comes the fifth movie directed by Fabrice Du Welz.
And what an excellent thriller, a unique and tragic initiation for a young cop who is the most skillful in guns but refuses to get involved in criminal investigation. But he is required by some very special cops, and what a hell... in the french war police. His story is diving in deeper and darker waters...
Ymanol Perset is perfect in playing this magnificent character. We must not forget Gérard Lanvin, Joey Starr, Alexandre Brasseur (remember his father Claude in Robin Davis movie on a similar subject 35 years ago) and all the others. Special appearance by Gerard Watkins (son of Peter Watkins).
Du Welz direction is precise and full of strong surprises, offering us a 85 minutes masterpiece, no length at all.
Hanx to Philippe for recommending it since a long time.
