«15 Minutes de guerre» (1) is a film by director Fred Grivois.
It tells of the real facts that took place in 1976 in Djibouti. "On February 3, a school bus pick-up from the air base, aboard the children, is taken hostage and stops a few meters from the Somali border. An unknown elite unit, the GIGN, is sent on site. After thirty hours of tension, a rescue operation is decided, "says the synopsis of the film. In a note of intent, the director describes that the film is a "slow-burner", an entertaining thriller that takes place in an extreme environment.
"It's a realistic story, driven by the humanity of its characters, immersing the viewer in a continuous suspense for almost a hundred minutes. The realization will be sober and simple, it will fade before the text and the actors. We will shoot in long and moving sequences in order to highlight the dialogues and the play of the actors. The action scenes will have a separate treatment. Shoulder-to-shoulder and long-shot shots to capture the violence, difficulty and exhaustion that ensues.
The goal here is to create a powerful and captivating narration while creating a strong visual dynamic. " Fred Grivois has cast several French film figures, including Olga Kurylenko, a model and actress of Ukrainian origin, seen in the film "Oblivion" and "James Bond: Quantum of Solace. " Sebastien Lalanne, actor, director and screenwriter, was also featured in «Astérix et le domaine des dieux (Voice)» and «Un grand bol d’air pur» and French actor Alban Lenoir seen in the cinema in "Les Gamins" and "Anti-Gang."
