Modern action thriller based in historical event
Based on true events that took place in February 1976. Somali rebels hijack a school bus carrying 21 French children and their teacher in the city of Djibouti. Newly created elite French forces (GIGN) are sent. At date they were somewhat ridiculed and viewed with disbelief. With this mission they prove their value in tactical special missions and today they are one of the most reputable police forces in France.
The film is good, managing to escape the trap of being too documentary. With good cinematography, a humorous and not overly dramatic script.
It works well not only from a historical point of view, but also as a modern and actual action thriller.
