A gripping thrill-ride of a film, Public Enemy # 1 tells the incredible and brutal true story of France's most wanted man, Jacques Mesrine. Arch-fiend to some and folk hero to others, his criminal career spanned nearly two decades of brazen bank robberies, breathtaking prison breaks, and ingenious identity changes across Europe and North America. Mesrine's life has been meticulously recreated on an epic scale, from his early days as a petty criminal to his daring kidnapping of French millionaire and his violent assassination by French special forces on a Parisian Street in 1979. Vincent Cassel (Eastern Promises, Ocean's 12), one of France's most magnetic leading men, leads an all-star cast including Cécile de France, Gérard Depardieu, Olivier Gourmet, Ludivine Sagnier and Mathieu Amalric in a two-part gangster classic to rival the epics of Scorsese and Coppola. Find out just why Jacques Mesrine was France's Public Enemy # 1. Presented in two feature length parts.--Kanopy
