What happened, that 24th of December? This is what officer Chartier wants to find out. To understand, he will have to go back 48 hours earlier to Franck's Christmas eve. Franck is an insignificant drama-teacher by day, but also belongs to a nameless and leaderless militant organisation - the Animal Liberation Front. These characters are bound by a limitless empathy towards mistreated animals, and will have to show courage to complete a mission they have been preparing for months. Their goal is to free dogs, condemned to be sold to laboratories for the purpose of live experiments. Their philosophy: when something has gone beyond the boundaries of reason, you have to forget about what's legal, and care about what seems right. During the questioning, Franck understands that one of his fellow campaigners betrayed him. Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

A very good thriller, a masterpiece for animal lovers
14 November 2012 | by iceman-85See all my reviews

Jerome Lescure did a very good movie about Animal Liberation Front. It's a thriller with psychological elements on the characters, more than an action movie. But the suspense is so intense there's no need of action movie. Animal lovers will recognize themselves in one of the character. Good music, very good screenplay and actors with Alexandre Laignier at his best. Jerome Lescure did a good movie but also a "political movie", denunciating vivisection and animal exploitation. The movie is very useful for those who don't know reality about what they use, eat, smell... It's not a documentary, so everyone can see it as he wants. And to conclude, the message is so interesting and disturbing that it's a "Must See".
