Storyline

Billionaire Nerio Winch is found dead, drowned. An obviously suspicious death as Nerio is the founder and majority shareholder of the powerful and sprawling W Group. Who will inherit this financial empire? Officially, Nerio had no family. But he had a secret he kept well-hidden: a son, Largo, adopted nearly thirty years before from a Bosnian orphanage. The only problem is this young heir has just been thrown in prison deep in the Amazon. Accused of drug trafficking, he claims he's innocent. Nerio murdered. Largo in prison. What if these two events were part of a plot to take control of the Winch empire? Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Trivia

Jean Van Hamme declared that though Tomer Sisley doesn't look like Largo Winch as drawn by Philippe Francq, he nevertheless resembles the one depicted in the novels, which preceded the comic book series. See more »

Goofs

The diver who drowned Nerio Winch was using a rebreather. Rebreathers do not produce bubbles since the exhaled air is circulated back to a compartment containing a substance to absorb the carbon dioxide before oxygen is added for reinhalation. See more »

Now the French are beating us at action/thrillers--we better start calling ours "Freedom Films"
31 May 2015 | by carbuffSee all my reviews

I put off watching this movie for a long time, but I ran out of things to watch with a certain group of people whose tastes I had to all satisfy, so I decided to this a try. I was thinking that a French action/thriller set in the world of corporate high finance sounds like an oxymoron; however, I was really wrong, and this movie was great.

It's quite intelligent for this kind of movie and is well-filmed in a variety of interesting locales. While obviously working with a way lower budget than a typical American blockbuster, it managed to be feel much more real and satisfying, with the added bonus of no unpleasant aftertaste of guilt for time wasted.

If you watch typical Hollywood thrillers, you really should give this foreign one a try, since, while it is not exactly brain food, it's a good step up from pure Tinseltown junk food.
