The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on 10th September 2014.
Synopsis: 1970s Marseille, is ruled by a brutal drug gang importing morphine from Turkey, transforming it into heroin and exporting the product to New York under the gang name la French. The gang, led by the cold-hearted Gaètan ”Tany” Zampa (Gilles Lellouche), is boosting its income from drug trafficking by doing extortion and robberies. Former Juvenile Court judge Pierre Michel (Jean Dujardin) is transferred to an organized crime unit, but finds out that la French’s crimes are difficult or impossible to prove and that the police unit investigating heroin trade under Captain Aime-Blanc has nothing relevant to report.
