Former radio reporter/photographer/TV director Julien Vrebos made his feature directorial debut with this Belgian-Dutch-German thriller inspired by the unsolved murder of 34 people by the Nivelles Gang during the '80s. The convoluted plot begins when the assassination of diplomat and double-agent Toussaint is investigated by policewoman Eva Siccard (Alexandra Vandernoot). She gets an assist from Flemish cop Peter Daerden (Peter van den Begin). Peter's girlfriend Kristl (Pascale Bal) dances at a club frequented by the wealthy Baron d'Aulne (Raymond Gerome), who sends terrorist Sophie (Natacha Amal) out on attacks in shopping malls. As it becomes clear that Toussaint was killed by Sophie, Peter's life is in danger. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
