Interesting film inspired from an actual event that occurred in the eighties. The tale of an ordinary man with major financial problems who is finally used, framed cheated by the french customs in order to jeopardize an international drug smuggling ring. Cheats, double cheats, all directional treachery, this film shows us the disgusting methods used by the french and British authorities - not so far from the ones used by the criminal organizations - to ironically wipe out those same organizations.
Of course, that's an ordinary law abiding citizen who is here the stool pigeon. This film seems at first sight to be predictable, with a scheme already seen a thousand times before. It's sometimes hard to follow, the methods used by the customs to destroy the smugglers are too complex to be got on the moment, but this feature remains an authentic bitter story which lets you a bad taste in the mouth.
No happy ending here, as you may expect from a Hollywood movie...
Yes, a very interesting film.
