This is the story of Franck, a young and dedicated Parisian firefighter, happily married and the father of twin baby girls. Shortly after being promoted to being the leader of his fire crew, he and his team face their first big fire in a warehouse in the suburbs. It is a very dangerous blaze, with a number of injured firefighters. While saving one of his colleagues, Franck is severely burned when flaming debris falls on him. He spends the next two years in a hospital, first wrapped like a mummy until slowly the devastation of his face and body become apparent when bandages are removed. No matter how careful the medical staff is, Franck is in agony during a lot of the procedures, such as when he is lowered into an antiseptic bath so that dead flesh can be removed. His wife and parents visit regularly, and he undergoes physical therapy. He is able to walk again, but his throat and lungs were injured in such a way that his voice will never be the same. He sounds like an old man when he ...
That's not really a movie about firemen, as were BACKDRAFT and LES HOMMES DU FEU, even if it tells the story of a fireman, an ambitious fireman who is suddenly victim, the casulaty of his own duty. It is rather a tale about love and heroisme; and not the kind of heroism, as you may expect to see, in the usual way I mean. It may be a drpressing movie, not for all audiences, but so moving, full of emotion, so deep, so poignant, so close to real life and human nature and behavior. As Mark Twain said: there are two days important in one's life: the day you are born and the day you find out why.
