“Has all the seat-edge energy of a thriller, buttressed by a real political heft.”~New Zealand International Film Festival

Aroview: A proficient, airtight geopolitical thriller from dir. Kassovitz, who also stars as the captain of a counterterrorist division sent to New Caledonia to diffuse a dangerous hostage-taking situation.

Framed against a backdrop of political unrest in France, this doubles down on the tension throughout, leading us efficiently through to an exciting climax.
