Muriel, François and René, three childhood friends from a working class neighbourhood of Marseille, suddenly stop their careers as thieves after having killed a jeweller.To keep a low profile, the friends see very little of each other until the day Muriel's son is kidnapped. Their friendship takes off right where they left it, when they come together once again to gather the ransom.Written by
Well kind of literally. This movie (thriller) revolves around three characters who have something in common. A secret from the past. But don't be afraid, this thriller won't really stretch anything or will leave you in the open for too long (a flashback will come along and explain something) ...
Of course this can also be seen as a bad sign. And unfortunately the movie does suffer from some of the failings a thriller can have. They don't drag the movie completely off the rail, but they sure make it a less stronger impact, than it could be. The actors are good, but are not so good, that they elevate and/or make you forget about the story flaws.
