Vincent Cassel stars in this acclaimed two film bio-pic based on the life of the infamous French gangster Jaques Mesrine. In the first part of the double whammy tonight the young Mesrine sets himself up as a hard-nosed gangster right-hand man and of course ladies man in true Mafios style. We follow his path to the top and the remarkable true-life events that follow his incarceration and veneration into a celebrity.
The films have won multiple awards and we screen them consecutively. Women, action, guns, trouble, an astounding true story and a whole lot of Cassel.
