Storyline

Alain, of North African origin, lives with the memory of his sister, kidnapped before his eyes by a neo-Nazi group when they were children. Added to this is the murder of his best friend by the head of security of "La Ligue patriotique", a powerful far-right party. Alain then decides, both out of personal vengeance and political conviction, to assassinate Hugues Henry Lègle, the leader of this movement.

Idiotic
2 October 2004 | by lefrelonvertSee all my reviews

This movie aims at being a pamphlet against the french far right, as the character of demagogue politician Hugues-Henry Lègle is an obvious caricature of real-life right-wing leader Jean-Marie Le Pen. Alas, the movie is a mish-mash of ludicrous clichés, and reads more like a bad comic book written by some naïve leftist. The "fascists" here look more like the ones leftists see in their nightmares. In the end, the movie does a disservice to the cause it purports to serve, as it makes Le Pen and co look sympathetic by being the targets of such a ridiculous turkey. The only saving grace is the good performance, as Lègle, of Jean-Marc Thibault, an veteran comic actor more often seen in low-brow sitcoms.
