Based on actual events that took place in the eighties, this French film has more than enough to hold most peoples interest. Marc Duval (Gilles Lellouche - `Mesrine') was a French citizen who got into some financial bother in his native land. He did a tactical withdrawal, both from his accounts and his country and ran off to Gibraltar. Once there he opened a bar, started a family and bought a boat.

We meet him when debts have caught up with him and he is looking for a way to augment his dwindling income. Enter Redjani Belimane ( Tahir Rahim - `A Prophet' and `The Past'), he works for French customs and says that for information, Marc will be amply rewarded. After a bit of thought Marc accepts. However, what he thinks he has signed up for is not necessarily what is understood by all the players. He has entered the murky world of international drug dealers and other nefarious types, not to mention the underhanded duplicity of all of the authorities involved.

This is not a full on action fest, but it does have all the hallmarks of a ruddy good thriller. The acting is all superb, with nice period detail that seems effortless. This is `inspired' by true events and so some will take exception to this portrayal, but if you ignore all of that you are still left with a really well made and even stylish film that has more surprises than a `Jack in the box' convention - recommended.

The Informant is a fab, action-packed suspense thriller. With a great plot weaving politics, guns and family, the film speaks to a range of audiences. The film is beautifully shot with some stunning scenes of the Gibraltar landscape all adding to the intensity. Definitely enjoyed it!
