See ya in Valparaiso
5 July 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

A terrific French political thriller, which denounces the big oïl companies and everything nasty they are ready to do in order to gain more and more power. An oïl tanker is wrecking near of French coasts, which of course provokes a black tide but not only. A female investigator decides to put the whole thing to the news, but she is also the daughter of one of the big executives...Jean François Stevenin is here at his very best. he brings us an awesome performance in this depressing but so realistic political thriller. A very daring tale produced by ARTE channel.
