“Black box”, a thriller with Pierre Niney in theaters this Wednesday

Paranoid movie, Black Box, Yann Gozlan’s fourth feature film was born from his fascination with this “mysterious” device used by investigators to shed light on the crash of an aircraft: in reality two orange boxes which record the flight data and the discussions in the cockpit.

“The film is about the quest for truth, conspiracy and the fact that sometimes the distinction is not obvious”, explains the director who sought to “send the viewer back, through this story, to the current world, paranoid and anxious”.

Following the unexplained disappearance of an investigator from the Bureau of Investigation and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA), Mathieu Vasseur (Pierre Niney), a brilliant young engineer, but in difficult human contact, finds himself in charge of the case.

The crashes of two Boeings 737 Max, in part caused by the malfunction of a system designed by the aircraft manufacturer to assist pilots, were a source of inspiration for the director. In 2018 and 2019, in Indonesia and Ethiopia, these accidents killed 347 people.
