"GIGN: AT THE HEART OF THE ACTION"
Role: Member of GIGN
Summary: ... Its role: to convince madmen or hostage takers to surrender without causing a victim. After having exhausted the virtues of negotiation and when all hope is gone, they storm.
This documentary by Nicolas Moscara followed day by day, for more than six months, the training and the interventions of the group. The reality on the ground sometimes stages dramatic events, where death is omnipresent, such as during the intervention at the home of a madman on January 19, 2007, during which Major Frédéric Mortier was fatally wounded.
