The Connection – out now on DVD and iTunes!

The critically acclaimed The Connection is now available on DVD and iTunes!

Marseilles, 1975. Young investigating magistrate Pierre Michel (played by Oscar winner Jean Dujardin, The Artist) decides to tackle the French Connection, a massive transatlantic heroin smuggling operation led by ruthless kingpin Gaëtan ‘Tany’ Zampa (Gilles Lellouche). Michel embarks on a personal crusade against Zampa, and will eventually have to put his life on the line.

Loosely based on a true story, The Connection is a gorgeous French thriller and character study. Director Cédric Jimenez takes the classic police procedural and spins it into into a stylish, slow-burning drama with shades of Scorsese. Dujardin and Lellouche are at the top of their form as the obsessive cop and terrifying gangster whose cat-and-mouse game reveals surprising similarities between them.

You can buy your copy of The Connection on Amazon or buy/rent on iTunes.
