April 1988, Ouvea island, New Caledonia. 30 policemen held hostage by a group of Kanak separatists. 300 soldiers sent from France to restore order. 2 men face to face: Philippe Legorjus, captain of the GIGN and Alphonse Dianou, head of the hostage takers. Through shared values, they will try to win the dialogue. But in the midst of a presidential election, when the stakes are political, order is not always dictated by morality.Written by
Phillippe Legorjus was the Chef d'Escadron of the GIGN (equivalent to a major or colonel) and was the overall head of the GIGN from 1983 to 1989. (He is referred to as a Captain in the subtitles of the Australian DVD.) Christian Prouteau, who is Legorjus' contact in Paris, was a previous head of the GIGN and was its founding commander from 1973-1982. See more »

Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité. But already a few years later the ideals of the French revolution were reduced by Napoleonic despotism. In modern times, the downsizing took place on several occasions, see the Algerian war until its involvement in Libya. There is talk of realpolitik!
Uncomfortable film, but not only for the French (understood as politicians), but for all (always politicians) belonging to the western democracies. Sinks the knife on the use of violence by politics in a cynical and hypocritical way, betraying the paragraph of this discussion.
"If truth hurts, lies will kill."
Films to be offered in schools during history!
