Yet, terrorist and secret agents lead almost the same lives. Condemned to secrecy, these masters of manipulation follow the same methods. Alex and Al Barad are two of them. The former is the head of the D.G.S.E.'s (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure, the French equivalent of the CIA or the MI6) counter-terrorism unit while the latter reigns over a terrorist network, and both fight using the most ruthless of weapons: human beings.

Secret défense is an interesting movie in that it combines the style of
French thrillers with Hollywood mainstream elements. Even during the
opening credits, the movie smacks of Tony Scott, right down to the
music, which reminds of "Enemy of the State".
I have not seen previous movies from director Philippe Haïm but I
sensed he could never firmly put his print on this espionage thriller
despite having the best of intentions. The story is cliché but
interesting enough despite quite weak dialogs, the pace is appropriate
so we get to know all the characters and the tension builds slowly as
the "pieces" move in this chess game of terror.
Unfortunately, there's just something missing to make us care about any
of these people. Perhaps this movie could have felt more fresh had it
come out in 2002 or 2003 but by now it all feels rehashed.
What saves the movie from being sub par is the avoidance of
over-the-top action sequences. The movie instead focuses on the cold,
calculating work done by both national security agents and terrorists
alike. Both sides thrive not due to super-heroic powers (think James
Bond here) but rather by a total disregard for human life. The movers
and shakers on both sides manipulate their gullible and vulnerable
assets into doing their dirty work. Bonus points for the gritty tone
which at times might not have been possible in a Hollywood movie.
Food for thoughts: Secret Defense cost 11 million Euros. Considering a
movie like "Spy Game" cost 92 million US dollars, it makes you consider
Europeans still know how to get a bigger bang for the buck.
Not the most spectacular entry in the genre but worthwhile. This is not
classic French cinema. This is not a Hollywood blockbuster. But if you
can appreciate an unambitious and entertaining movie somewhere between
the two, this might be for you.
