Moved by the plight of the mother of her daughter's school friend, a young judge facing an incurable disease teams up with an older colleague in order to fight against financial companies that exploit the poor.
Picked up for 1 at a car boot sale in Normandy as it had English subtitles mainly because it looked a promising subject. We certainly bought into this well acted story for 1hr30 although the film was about half way through before the searching began. However, the film then lost all credibility with a totally unrealistic explanation as to Loïc's disappearance. It is interesting to note the lavish praise other reviewers have heaped on the film given this glaring weakness in the screen play. It would have been better to have left the viewer uncertain as to Loïcs ultimate disposal. Hence only 4 stars. Have however sought out a further two films by the director.
