The plot of the film revolves around a young submariner who has a unique hearing. He works as an acoustics and can recognize any sound. The fate of many people depends on his ability, and a mistake threatens the life of the entire crew of the submarine. Trying to regain the confidence of his comrades, he conducts his own investigation of military provocation. It put the whole world at risk of a nuclear apocalypse. Now the elite combat team has to do everything possible to prevent a world war. They need to do the almost impossible, since the main command order is not subject to cancellation.

User Reviews

for submarines movies lovers, which is rare
27 February 2019 | by happytrigger-64-390517See all my reviews

Submarine movie genre is quite unique in France, I just remember having seen 40 years ago the René Clément "les Maudits" (with a terrific scene), I really don't remember another french title dealing with submarines. Even in Hollywood, it's a seldom exploited theme. And we have the opportunity to discover a kind of french Joel Silver production, but without Bruce Willis or other great star. And that's cool, all cast is fine (Francis Lavil as the special acoustic young specialist), but real special bravo to director Antonin Baudry and his team : first direction, complete solid and technical direction, tragic suspense, a never seen geo political subject in french cinema. Go on Mr Baudry, we're waiting for your next movie.
