Storyline

During a routine night patrol, police officer Bastien, his long-term partner Julie and the newcomer cop Simon are called out by a neighbor complaining of the noise in another apartment. Bastien knocks the door and out of the blue, the dweller opens the door and shoots him in the chest. Julie shoots the man who is high on drugs and apprehends a strange fluorescent yellow drug. They soon learn that the man is the son of a politician, and they are forced to sign a statement saying that the shooting was accidental. When the man recovers in the hospital, he sues the police officers and the police department does not support them. However, their chief tells them that they should find the trafficker that sold the drugs to the man. So Julie and Simon go undercover to the underworld of drugs. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Under the influence
28 December 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The influence being the Belgian thrillers I have watched lately. And compared to them, this would be really weak. But I am not trying to compare those (though it would be nice to see a Belgian remake of this movie ... and why shouldn't they do that?). This french thriller is nicely done and has good actors.

Still too much cliché and as another reviewer wrote, you'd be excused for thinking you are back in the 80s when you read the plot of the movie. But of course there is more to it than meets the eye, which almost elevates the movie to another level. Unfortunately it stays with the "almost" and does not take that leap. Still if "crime" is your thing, you might wanna try this out. You could do a lot worse.
