Storyline

This movie tells the story of a group of right-wing cops have begun carrying out vigilante justice on drug dealers and other crime figures who might otherwise avoid punishment for their misdeeds. Police inspector Grindel (Delon) understands the feelings which motivate these deeds, but does not approve. However, he is not highly motivated to put an end to the group's activities until it begins to appear that they are now attacking fellow cops for reasons which are unclear. Grindel sets to work to uncover the culprits, and in a climactic scene, confronts his colleague Scatti Written by Ørnås

Trivia

The story is based on events taking place between between mars 1979 and October 1980, when several people were killed in France, Italy and Germany by the underground organization named Fédération d'action nationaliste et européenne (FANE), aka Faisceaux nationalistes-européens (july-October 1980), supposedly consistent of right-wing police officers who considered the judicial system too bland against criminals and communists. The organization announced its dissolution, but the French courts dissolved it in 1985, and again in 1987 due to judicial errors in the first decision. The French police branch of FANE was known as "Honneur de la police", hence the film's expression "Fidélité à la police". One of their victims were people affiliated to the left-wing movement "Prima Linea", referenced in the movie as "Prima Cosa". Coluche may have been one of Honneur de la police's victims. See more »

Never wake a cop.....
17 May 2006 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

.... to watch this movie!And never wake anyone! Artistically,it represents one of the lowest points Alain Delon was to reach.

Frederic Fajardie's screenplay (I have not read his novel)is abysmal.And however the subject was vital,considering the rise of the far right which again will be a terrifying threat in France's 2007 elections ,as it was in 2002.

The problem lies in the fact that the far-right cops'"ideas" of Pinheiro's film are not well-defined.Their ideology is vague -the commies seem to be their main target (Feodor Atkine's character)-but we do know that their scapegoats are numerous from the Arabs to the Jews to the homosexuals .Here they seem to be baddies,period ;it is as mindless as a Van Damme movie .

The plot accumulates violence and killings.The story is full of implausibilities:One of Delon's colleagues is actually one of those villains;unbeknownst to his superior,he takes a break and shoots a guy -Serge Regianni,what a shame to reduce this legendary actor to that- on a merry-go-round.But the dead "strikes back" and goes on killing people on the carousel;no,it's not the return of "stranger on a train"!The ridiculous happy end comes at the most awkward moment or to give Delon a chance to shine ,so to speak.

Take to your heels!
