Storyline

This is not the way it was supposed to happen. Like every other morning, Christian Echeveria, huissier, should have been able to levy his daily distress in this Parisian suburb, before going back to his comfortable home. But that's not what destiny had planned for him, as he'll get to understand it when Salem Atelhadj, 17, takes him a hostage, under his father's desperate eyes, in the tower's twelfth floor which will soon be surrounded by policemen and anti-terrorists squads. Written by Amélie Vrla

Sudden acts of craziness, and honesty
21 December 2011 | by soubhikSee all my reviews

the story began with a sudden act of craziness, ended with another. in between, it was a package of twists and comedy that kept me interested for, well, almost, the entire duration.

beneath the humor, the story showed us how people, when pushed to a corner, became more honest with themselves and their relationships. and how craziness transcended races. a turn in the story and a jobless drunkard Algerian immigrant man became a caring father. another turn and a couple who were about to visit a marriage counsellor rediscovered their love. as the story progresses, the layers peel off the characters and we're left with 3 humans. crazy to varying degrees. loving and caring.

towards the end, the plot seemed to run out of breath. it came alive again when the hostage took charge of the situation.
