Quite fun.

Not that it is all very correct or credible, and in the denouement there are quite a few solid plot holes in the story. But, until then, it is told in an exciting way, and Pierre Niney plays a great nerd - perhaps helped by his google-glasses appearance, or is it Snowden that I am confused with. Lou de Laâge, on the other hand, doesn't come out very well, and I didn't find Dussollier's supporting role that impressive either.

Strong and excellent plot. It is first made clear that Mathieu has some imagination in addition to his hearing skills; that he wants to hear certain things, such as the intrusion of the cockpit by a terrorist. That also makes him unbelievable to his loved ones. Until he plunges deeper into the investigation and gets closer and closer to the truth. In any case, a nice glimpse into the aviation world is given. There are some things in it that are beyond probability, but that's what a movie is for. The tension was built up excellently and the climax at the end was of course inevitable. Too bad there are still some things left unanswered. Great thriller with a good cast.

A bit hyped up and forced in the direction of a most fascinating denouement, but in such a film that deals with a plane crash from the investigative point of view - even if only in one man - the thriller allure can be encouraged.

Moreover, I am surprised that such classic research data is not safe for...
