Tahiti, Französisch-Polynesien: Gerüchte gehen um, dass die Atomversuche wieder aufgenommen werden sollen, angeblich sei des Nachts vor der Küste ein U-Boot gesichtet worden. Unter den Einheimischen kommt Unruhe auf; De Roller, Hochkommissar Frankreichs, von Magimel als fadisiert Undurchsichtiger mit dem Potenzial zu blitzartig aufschnellender Gefährlichkeit gespielt, versucht zu beschwichtigen. Freilich zieht er im Hintergrund auch noch an ein paar anderen Strippen. Ein breit angelegter Thriller, dem die tropische Hitze das Tempo nimmt und der Schauplatz berauschende Schönheit verleiht – und beides sich verschwört, das Publikum in Trance zu versetzen. (Alexandra Seitz)

In Anwesenheit von Albert Serra und Montse Triola (Cast, Produktion).

A comedy set and shot in French Polynesia, its first image one of a paradise, half lost, half purgatory: a port full of ship containers at sunset. There, on the island of Tahiti, reigns the High Commissioner of the Republic and French government official De Roller, a man of culture and charisma, who is as devoted to the senses as he is to financial maneuvers. He maintains a delicate social equilibrium night and day with an economy of favors and arrangements. Suddenly, a group of sailors appears in the night with their captain, a man equal to De Roller but with the sea as his kingdom. Their presence breaks the fragile peace of the island, and a rumor starts of a threat that belongs to a recent, yet forgotten past: the sailors arrived in a submarine, and they have come to perform nuclear tests in the ocean.
PACIFICTION revolves around the question of sovereignty. When a country is also a world power, do all its citizens count? The French overseas territories are at the center of this question, and the very existence of these as territories is at the heart of its comedy. If there is such a thing as hopeful cynicism, this is it. (Lucía Salas)
