No blink French thriller – fab.  Was on at Watershed – good views, good food.

The blurb; Cavayé follows up Anything For Her with another frenetic tale of an innocent man forced into a race against time to save his partner. Here it centres on Samuel (Gilles Lellouche), a nurse in training who must save his pregnant wife by springing a criminal from police custody and delivering him to his cronies within three hours. The pair embark on a mad dash across Paris pursued by two sets of cops, and Samuel is willing to do whatever it takes to complete his task. Packed with riveting energy and some fabulous action sequences, every last drop of tension is wrung out at a breakneck speed. A gripping, polished piece of work from a director who is fast establishing himself as a prolific creator of high-octane French thrillers.
