Directed by Rene Gainville
Inspired by historical
events, Rene Gainville's intelligent political thriller focuses on
France's bitter war with Algeria and the group of disenchanted Army
officers who opposed DeGaulle's decision to pull out. In a desperate
attempt to save the colony, they attempt a coup. Top-notch cast includes
Michel Bouquet and Jean Rochefort caught in a cat and mouse game between
rebels, politicos and police. French with English subtitles.
