The Making Of feature is definitely worth a look as well.
on 25 August 2014
This is a superb film. Based on real people and events and is brilliantly put together with a great cast and director, an entertaining narrative, great cinematography and soundtrack I would give all aspects of Gang Story a very positive mention.
Gérard Lanvin gives a brilliant performanc as Edmond Vidal aka Momon and indeed the whole cast give superb performances. Once again this is a French film where everything seems just about perfect – the acting, music, cinematography, direction…
I would recommend that anyone who watches this DVD might also like to watch the Making Of feature which, as well as being entertaining gives an explanation of the fictional part of the story.
Anyone who has enjoyed Mesrine would most probably also enjoy Gang Story. Gérard Lanvin (the lead role in Gang Story) has a supporting role in Mesrine.
The Making Of feature, which is just over fifty minutes long, starts with the voice of Edmond Vidal known as Momon talking about meeting the ex flic, ex cop turned film director, Olivier Marchal and then what follows is a fasinating feature that I would say is well worth looking at.
