Our Score
Violent strangers threaten to kill the pregnant wife of a Paris hospital employee unless he smuggles out an injured patient in this blisteringly exciting crime thriller from Fred Cavayé (Anything For Her). Rugged Gilles Lellouche is perfect as the Hitchcockian "Wrong Place, Wrong Time, Wrong Man" whose life spirals out of control as he is drawn into a web of police corruption and murder in high places. Roschdy Zem is also terrific playing the sinister convalescent he's forced to buddy up with, and together the pair are hunted across the city in a series of relentlessly paced, action-packed chase sequences. Teeming with technical virtuosity, surprise twists and visceral tension (the wife-in-jeopardy scenes are startling), this is a galvanizing must-see for all lovers of seat-edge suspense cinema.


A nurse saves the life of a dangerous criminal, whom the police keep under armed guard at the hospital where he works. The nurse receives a chilling message from his patient's henchmen, who have kidnapped his wife and will kill her unless he helps their boss escape. Action thriller, starring Gilles Lellouche and Roschdy Zem. In French.
