| Pure Olivier Marchal's product.
I confess that I am an Olivier Marchal's addict. To the bone. Everything he makes, good or less good, I take. This one makes no exception. It is inspired by the Michel Neyret case, a major cop, an executive in police force, who was accused of bribery and close - too close? - relationship with the underworld. Olivier Marchal was a cop thirty years ago, so he knows what he talks about. And Michel Neyret is a friend of his. It's a cop tale, from the inside, where the lead is a heat accused of what I have just explained. Bruno Wolkovitch is so impressive here, as the accused cop. Olivier Marchal named one of his characters Janssen. Probably a tribute to Jean-Pierre Melville's character in LE CERCLE ROUGE and played in 1970 by Yves Montand. Everything here sounds true, believable. Many flashbacks in this cop story, this crepuscular tale, a story about heats friendship, showing their life, their hopes, their fears. Their melancholy. Their sadness.

Worth watching, no problem.

I repeat, a pure Marchal's piece of work, stronger than a gram of pure heroine.
