Based on a true story, Gang Story (Les Lyonnais) is the epic tale of Edmond Vidal (Gérard Lanvin Point Blank); one of the French underworld s most notorious figures having led the Gang des Lyonnais to a spate of successful armed robberies in the 1970s. Overcoming dangerous gang rivalries and battles with the police, Vidal survived to enjoy the good life...until now. With his life-long friend Serge Suttel (Tchéky Karyo Bad Boys) in trouble, Vidal gets drawn into one last job. But fighting against his own history and facing a desperate situation, is this the end for Vidal? Taken from Edmond Vidal s book Pour une poignée de cerises , Gang Story is a shocking, thrilling ride. A must-see... ferocious, fearless Four stars, Metro. A gangster flick to stand shoulder to shoulder with Mesrine Empire

the film could have been very enjoyable if only the producers of the video had decided to put a proper sub-titles,not just a few phrases here and there.This really spoilt the viewing DONT BUY unless you understand FRENCH.and can follow the dialogue in its original language

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.

POSSIBLE SPOILER

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.

Whilst the comparisons to Mesrine are understandable (it's based on a true story of the French underworld of the 1970s), they are two very different films. Set in modern day France with extended flashbacks, this is a film about loyalty, betrayal and revenge between former gang members. The acting is first class and overall it's a very stylish production with more of an emphasis on drama than thrills but with enough action sequences to satisfy. It's not perfect - it occasionally suffers from a lack of suspense and tension - but nonetheless it's an enjoyable film and I definitely recommend it.

There are no problems with the sub titles!

Excellent French gangster movie. Interesting and pacey storyline, plenty of violence and suspense if you like that and superb acting!

You will enjoy it!

A believable story showing that crime and corruption flourishes in all aspects of society. Sub titles could have been better.
