Storyline

Frank is one of the best firefighters in Paris. Their motto: to save or perish. Married with newborn kids, he is happy. Waiting for what all men like him are waiting for: test by fire. When that test arrives, Frank sacrifices himself, stuck in the blaze and rescuing his unit. He miraculously wakes up at the Serious Burn Unit and understands that his face melted in the flames and his body is changed forever. A long recovery process starts where Frank will need to accept to be saved as well. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Memorable & Emotional Film.
4 April 2020 | by ronevickersSee all my reviews

This is a quite magnificent film on so many counts. Inspired by true events, this story of the human spirit, overcoming all the odds, will remain long in the memory. Everything about it is top notch - direction, cinematography, script and, most of all, the acting. All play their parts exceptionally well, with Pierre Niney in the lead role being particularly outstanding. His range of emotions, in a difficult part, dominate the film, and he confirms the fact that he is a brilliant actor. This is a must see movie for anyone who appreciates film making at its best.
