We can literately label it as a "terrorism drama", because this film, known also as "Paris Is Happening", is about a group of teenagers, played by Finnegan Oldfield, Vincent Rottiers, Manal Issa and Hamza Meziani, who plant bombs across Paris. Director Bertrand Bonello ("Saint Laurent", "House of Tolerance",…) casted intentionally a diverse ensemble in order to avoid the marginalization of any community, but the film still made (and will make) some controversy, especially after getting through several attacks lately in Paris (and not only) and after that you got that constant feel of frightening that the terror is just a glimpse "away" from you.

"One morning in Paris. A fistful of adolescents, from different backgrounds. Individually, they begin a strange dance through the labyrinth of the metro and the streets of the capital. They seem to be following a plan. Their gestures are precise, almost dangerous. They come together in the same place, a department store, at closing time. Paris erupts. The assault begins…" is the official synopsis, while the film itself will be released on August 31.
