Everything is fine for Samuel and Nadia: he will soon be a male nurse and she’s expecting their first child. But everything changes when Nadia is kidnapped in front of him. Later he gets a phone call: he has only 3 hours to get a patient under police surveillance out.
Director Fred Cavayé’s adrenalized follow-up to Pour elle is a similarly in-your-face thriller, in which a reluctant working-class hero traverses a series of high-risk, high-speed situations. Expect car chases, kidnappings, and a lot of violence in this welcome French take on an enduring genre.
