The Frenchie blockbuster that overshadows Hollywood

Le Chant Du Loup Film

Who said that French cinema cannot overshadow Hollywood ? In a first film as a director, screenwriter Antonin Baudry puts our eyes on a thrilling story of submarines in the midst of an international political crisis.

Verdict

This thrilling and relevant dystopia is drunk like whey and intelligently explores current geopolitical issues at a time of the terrorist threat. If immersion in an underwater environment is guaranteed, we regret the riquiqui female cast.
