To what length can a human go to reach his/her goals? To prove one's point? To save one's skin or to save millions of people? In one word, there is no limit.
Black Box is a drama-thriller by Yann Gozlan presented at the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival across Australia this year. Black Box is about a plane crash and what happens afterwards. How one person's quiet persistence and search for truth can uncover so many secrets, cover-ups, lies, deceptions and outright evil.
Mathieu (Pierre Niney, Promise at Dawn, AF FFF17), one of the best black box analysts available, is assigned the task of finding out what happened. Before he gets the chance to properly investigate, the case is dismissed. But Mathieu can't stop. He digs in his heels and his fingers. He listens and listens some more. What he uncovers will shock him and his beliefs, his commitments and faith in people and loved ones.
Add to this drama amazing cinematography that can only come from France, music and a team of beautiful actors and you get a very suspenseful, believable and dramatic movie that will keep you on the edge of your sits just because it is so believable and characters are so relatable.
