This first film, seductive by its way of conceiving itself in the opposite direction of the French canons in terms of the author’s stroke, exalts with a tense magnetism how much the superior necessity of a story is (…).
In a bewitching first feature film that flirts with the metaphysical, cubism and the fantastic, Clément Cogitore films a French regiment in perdition.
Ambitious, the film is ballast. The principles that drive him, first of all the will that carries him to deliver no explanation, place him on a tightrope, from which he has great merit not to tumble.

Transported into real conditions, with real packs and real weapons, the actors take up a famous challenge here: to serve without fail a scenario that plays on two dimensions. Captivating from start to finish.
