synopsis

Fresh out of basic training, Leo lands his first assignment: a surveillance operation that sees him roaming the streets of Paris with nothing to do other than remain alert for potential threats. Given the task of securing the borders of a massive anti-government demonstration, Leo finds himself plunged into the heart of a raging crowd. All the pressure and impotent fury that has built up over weeks is about to explode...

director's statement

Some years ago, France went “to war” against terrorism. Following the declaration of a state of emergency in the country, we grew used to crossing soldiers on patrol, machine guns in hand, on our city streets, much as one would actually see in a country at war. To say that we grew used is actually something of a lie. I’m not used to it. La troisième guerre is the war we may already be fighting unbeknownst to us. A new kind of war, no longer a war of positions, but of power. A war that may not be quite a war as we think of it, but a fantasy of war. The tension that drives the film comes from this realisation: no one knows exactly what a war looks like. We have all seen images of war, but what is the “right” image of war?
