Pierre Jolivet's wife suggested Marc Lavoine for the role of Julien Bass, the dirty chief of Maya's narc squad, much to the actor's surprise as he'd never played that type of character before. See more »
I am usually pretty downbeat when it comes to the quality of French movies, but this one took me by surprise in a very pleasant way.
The problem with movies I love is that I can't find much to say about them. The story is great, the actors are great, I suppose the direction is great too since I was so immersed in the story that I didn't notice anything about it, and the ending was quite moving as well.
It's a gritty police movie with realistic dialogues, a well-paced and intriguing storyline and a good balance of action and emotion.
Big props to Marc Lavoine who is fantastic as the rotten policeman Julien Bass; I must say I didn't know he could act that well.
