Rebellion (French: L'Ordre et la Morale) is a 2011 French historical drama film directed, produced, co-written, co-edited by and starring Mathieu Kassovitz.[1][2] Set in New Caledonia but filmed in Tahiti, the film recreates a version of the Ouvéa cave hostage taking in 1988.[3] Kassovitz, Benoît Jaubert and Pierre Geller were collectively nominated for the 2012 Best Writing (Adaptation) César Award.


In a French colony 30 policemen are taken hostage by local separatists. Captain Philippe Legorjus is sent out to negotiate with rebel leader Alphonse Dianou. With him come 300 French soldiers who stand ready in case his efforts for a peaceful solution should fail.
