Storyline

French territory is threatened by a terrorist organization just before the presidential election. If the government doesn't answer its demands, programmed bombs will explode gradually on the national railway network. Despite the operation deployed by the anti-terrorist unit, the Home Office has no other choice but to call Franck Barrot, police superintendent well-known for his controversial methods, to neutralize the armed group. His investigation will lead him to the very top level of the terrorist organization : the government itself. Written by Anonymous

Gritty political thriller
4 July 2020 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I don't remember this TV movie aired nearly ten years ago and that could remind a French series : ENGRENAGES involving anti terrorism executives against a terrorist threat. Lambert Wilson is excellent in the lead role, but the story is not always believable, though being very well documented concerning technicalities. A head cop supposed discharged without payroll and who leads an investigation would not fool an idiot...But I loved the excellent ending, in the pure French political thrillers. Yves Boisset could have made such a film.
