The long-awaited French feature film on the November 2015 attacks in Paris got a first trailer on Tuesday. Cédric Jimenez’s film, which was warmly applauded at its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, will be released in France this fall.
November stars Sandrine Kiberlain and Jean Dujardin as members of a police unit that begins an all-out hunt, in France, Morocco and on the Internet, to get their hands on terrorists.
On the evening of November 13, 2015, in just a few hours, jihadist commandos killed 130 people and injured 350 in Paris and the suburbs, near the Stade de France, on terraces in the capital and in the theater of the Bataclan.
For five days, the results hoped for by the whole of France are delayed: the police fight against fatigue and anger, and accumulate false leads. The testimony of a friend of the person who hosted the Islamists will prove decisive.
At the end of the screening of November in Cannes, on May 22 in the Grand Auditorium Louis Lumière, the film crew was applauded for a long time by a standing audience.
