Storyline

Mangin, a police inspector in Paris, leans hard on informants to get evidence on three Tunisian brothers who traffic in drugs. He arrests one, Simon, and his girl-friend Noria. Simon's brothers go to their lawyer. He springs Noria, who promptly steals 2 million francs that belong to the Tunisians. They suspect her of the theft; her life as well as the lawyer's is in danger. Meanwhile, Noria is playing with both the lawyer and Mangin's affections. Mangin is mercurial anyway: intimidating and bloodying suspects, falling for a police commission trainee before flipping for Noria, wearing his emotions on his sleeve. Can he save the lawyer and Noria, and can he convince her to love? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pialat mark
20 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

at first sigh, a confuse/chaotic story. because the title seems be a trap.at the second, a love one. in fact, only one of Pialat demonstrations about the frame of an universe. realistic in so measure than it becomes bitter. cruel and delicate. a film out of precise genre who explores the interest for two real good actors and for a puzzle story. it is a love story in same measure as fear story. because the element who defines it is the search of axis for lead characters life. and Sophie Marceau/Gerard Depardieu are the best interpreters for create the web of an impossible relation and for suggest the map of a world.
