A sort of french Buried on the ground instead of under it.
We could say that film is a sort of mix up between HURT LOCKER and BURIED. With a little touch of LES MORFALOUS, because it involves a bunch of lost patrol, in the middle of nowhere, in the desert - Afghanistan - with a loot in front of them - a heroin shipment taken from the Talibans.
A fair, interesting and exciting little suspenser. One of the troopers finds himself with his foot on a mine, and can not move...Reduced to only twenty minutes, it could easily have been an ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS episode. Because the ending is very surprising, not the one you might expect.
You see, in most tales of this kind, where the lead finds himself in an impossible situation, he nearly always eventually makes it. In this tale, that's exactly the contrary.
A very ironic tale, I assure you.
A genuine must see film, with a tiny budget.
