'En danger de vie' is a fine drug drama dealing with the drug addiction of Jean-Luc, the teenage son to a disappointed cello player and a suicidal mother. One day, Guillard, a teenager without any serious drug problems saves Jacqueline, Jean Luc's mother, from committing suicide. Guillard wants to help her and becomes Jean-Luc's friend as he's exploring his drug addiction and the horrible problems that come along with it. The movie is a fine display of youth drug addiction in French middle class families. It's not that clichéd, the characters are credible and it's...realistic.
