This article discusses the Netflix film ATHENA including the premise, release date, cast, and trailer.

In this article, we’ll look at and analyze what there is to view regarding the French film Athena.

Netflix’s ATHENA premise

According to Netflix, “After the death of his youngest brother following an alleged police altercation, Abdel (Dali Benssalah) is called back from the frontline to find his family torn apart. Caught between his younger brother Karim’s (Sami Slimane) desire for revenge and the criminal dealings of his older brother Moktar (Ouassini Embarek), he struggles to calm the rising tensions. As the situation escalates, their community ATHENA is transformed into a fortress under siege, becoming a scene of tragedy for both the family and beyond”.

Our opinion of the premise

I love a lot of European films, so the fact that the film is French is already a big win. The plot itself also sounds very interesting, whilst not giving loads of information away. Just what are the criminal dealings? And will the tragedies be? So, based on the premise, I’m already intrigued.

Overall, this seems like quite a revenge-filled film. But better yet, there looks like there’s going to be quite a lot of emotion involved. It might mean that some parts may be uncomfortable to watch, but overall I’m expecting a really good watch.
