Tcheky Karyo, he gets drawn into one last job. Then the plot gets more complicated.
It is a fast-paced thriller with the level of violence to be expected from a gangster film. It does switch back and forwards in time.so we see the gang when it was conducting its armed robberies back in the 70's.
The DVD also has a "Making Of " featurette which is fascinating and much more detailed than most similar documentaries.
Years later and Momon feels he must help his oldest friend who has been on the lam for years, and has only just been re~imprisoned, but with the law hot on the old gang's heels, and other gangsters wanting what's owed to them by Momon's old pal, things are becoming increasingly dangerous.
However these could be nothing compared to the ghosts of the past and the revelations they unleash...
This was a very good true crime story indeed. It features plenty of action as it dips between the past and the present, and further involves the viewer with themes of fraternity, love, honour and ultimately, betrayal. The acting and action are of a high standard, and it was nice to see Estelle Skornik ('Nicole' from the old Renault adverts!!) turn up in a fairly small but integral role. Still just as pretty ~ and as always, oozing total Frenchness!
It reminded me a little of the rather epic 'Romanzo Criminale', except much more succinct.
The UK dvd only has one extra to boast, but it is a rather interesting making of.. Which features some of the real life individuals the film is based on. The print is no less than what you would expect from a new film.
Director Marchal (an ex~policeman apparently), did a decent job with this. I shall keep an eye out for his future projects.
