This French feature from writer, director and former policeman Olivier Marchal is a gloomy tale set in Marseilles, kicking off with the hijacking of a bus by the alcoholic Detective Schneider. Disgraced, Schneider is removed from the investigation of a serial killer, and at the same time another murderer is released after convincing the probation committee that he’s found god. In surprisingly Hollywood fashion (this is a French film, after all), the guy who’s been kicked off the case discovers the truth behind both cases and uncovers a whole lot of police corruption. But who will believe him? Expect the usual clichés, but with a healthy helping of style a la Francais.
