Why watch this film?
Directed by Cédric Jimenez ('The Connection'), 'BAC Nord' is a conventional crime thriller. Its ideas have been seen in numerous films of the genre, French or otherwise, with a somewhat simplistic view of social marginalization in countries like the European Union. However, there are good performances from Gilles Lellouche ('Men at Sea'), Adèle Exarchopoulos ('Life of Adele') and François Civil ('Someone, Somewhere') and the action scenes are well executed. The movie works as a superficial entertainment.
A police brigade working in the dangerous northern neighborhoods of Marseille, where the level of crime is higher than anywhere else in France.
