Lucas is 46. A great cop, running arms trafficking in Marseille. Maya is 25. A young narc in Paris. As they often do, guns meet drugs. And Lucas will meet Maya. Not necessarily by accident. Busts, heists, informants... their investigations will become entangled. So will their lives. Because their story began long before their meet-up.Written by
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've seen quite a few good french crime/cop movies and this ain't bad either. But it doesn't achieve what some of the other movies did. The movie tries to stay connected to (almost) too many people for it's own good. In the end it does work out, but sometimes less can be more (efficient).
Still good acting, some solid action scenes, make this a nice watch. Don't be too distracted by some odd story choices and you will enjoy this quite a bit. Of course I also hope that you won't confuse/connect this with other movies. Especially in Germany they try to connect movies, that have nothing in common (in this case it's the lead actor) and give the movies names that sound similar. Your expectations would never be met (one way or the other).
