Firemen slice of life
25 April 2020 | by johnpierrepatrickSee all my reviews

This movie almost acts as a documentary showing the daily life of firemen. We follow the different difficulties they have to face - a little too much in drawing up an exhaustive list however.

The weakness of the movie is by wanting to show a realistic depiction of their daily life, the story is lacking a bit and, if the characters are interesting and clearly bringing their share to that depiction, a 'macguffin' on top of the arrival of a woman team leader in the unit would have been a plus.
