Incredibly intense and meticulously researched, The Assault is a vividly realistic portrayal of the true-life events that gripped a TV audience of over 21 million viewers on Saturday December 24th 1994. It’s Christmas Eve 1994. A flight from Algiers bound for Paris is hijacked and 227 passengers are taken hostage by a militant group of heavily armed Islamic terrorists. The authorities’ only hope of saving the passengers is to enlist the GIGN, an elite special-forces unit. But it’s a deadly mission of survival that will escalate into a violent confrontation that’s both brutal and moving. Directed by Julien Leclerq, The Assault stars Vincent Elbaz, Gregori Derangere, Melanie Bernier, Aymen Saidi and Marie Guillard.
