CONNECTION, THE (2014)
The European flipside to William Friedkin's THE FRENCH CONNECTION, Cédric Jimenez's (THE MAN WITH THE IRON HEART) version is a stylish, '70s-set crime thriller inspired by true events. Marseille magistrate Pierre Michel (Academy Award® winner Jean Dujardin, THE ARTIST) is on a crusade to dismantle the most notorious drug smuggling operation in history: the French Connection. In his crosshairs is kingpin Gaètan "Tany" Zampa (Gilles Lellouche, MESRINE: KILLER INSTINCT, POINT BLANK), who runs the largest underground heroin trade into the States. Though Michel will stop at nothing to ensure the crime ring's demise, Zampa's "la French" always seems one step ahead. (Note adapted from Drafthouse Films.) DIR/SCR Cédric Jimenez; SCR Audrey Diwan; PROD Alain Goldman. France/Belgium, 2014, color, 135 min. In French with English subtitles. RATED R
