Restless, aka Sans répit, is a French criminal drama that is the most recent addition to Netflix. The film was directed by Régis Blondeau and co-written by Blondeau and Julien Colombani. The OTT space has been a gift for French delights, but it's uncommon for an action film to appear, keeping us all on our toes about what's to come. With blood, gore, and more, let's examine everything we need to know about this Netflix picture before its premiere.
What Is Restless About?
When a crooked officer becomes engaged in a hit-and-run case, he uncovers the victim's secrets and a larger-scale crime. With a brief running length of 96 minutes, the French crime-drama film “Restless” manages to remain engaging and tense throughout. In the first half of the film, we follow a criminal who is desperate to cover up his misdeeds, but the narrative takes a turn and exonerates him, and we are introduced to a new antagonist.
In the universe of ‘Restless,' it is impossible to pick a nice man because everyone is implicated in some form of wrongdoing, which may make the film a decent watch.

As he was engaged with both responsibilities, he drove his vehicle negligently. When he observed a dog in the middle of the road, he attempted to save it while momentarily losing control of his vehicle.
As he exited his vehicle, he observed an unconscious man laying on the road. Upon closer examination, he determined that the man was not breathing. Fearing arrest, Thomas chose to conceal his error. He transported the body in the trunk of his automobile.
However, fate was not on his side. As he attempted to speed away, the cops stopped his vehicle to inquire. Without a license or a badge, the police officers became suspicious of Thomas. However, after discovering that Thomas was a lieutenant, they permitted him to depart. After reaching the mortuary, Thomas realized he had to dispose of the body and devise a strategy.
In the meantime, the security crew was searching for dishonest police officers and wanted to inspect the station. Thomas was notorious for his dishonest behavior, and his coworkers feared he would get into trouble. When Thomas was tardy, his coworkers took action independently.
