Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.  A stylish, 70's-period crime thriller inspired by true events, The Connection tells the story of real-life Marseille magistrate Pierre Michel (Jean Dujardin, The Artist, The Wolf Of Wall Street) and his relentless crusade to dismantle the most notorious drug smuggling operation in history: the French Connection. In his crosshairs is charismatic and wealthy kingpin, Gatean 'Tany' Zampa (Gilles Lellouche, Point Blank, Mesrine: Killer Instinct), who runs the largest underground heroin trade into the States. Though the fearless and tenacious Michel, aided by a task force of elite cops, will stop at nothing including boldly orchestrated drug raids, devastating arrests, and exacting interrogations to ensure the crime ring's demise, Zampa's 'La French' always seems one step ahead. As La French mounts its retaliation, Michel will be forced to make the most difficult decision of his life: to continue waging his war, or ensure his family's safety, before it's too late. The European flipside to William Friedkin's 'The French Connection'.

Jean Dujardin stars in this French crime drama directed by Cédric Jimenez. Set in the 1970s, the story follows former Marseille judge Pierre Michel (Dujardin) as he attempts to take down the notorious drug smuggling operation known as the French Connection. In his relentless pursuit of justice, Michel experiences the brutal backlash of the La French gang, led by Gatean Zampa (Gilles Lellouche), who always seem to be one step ahead of the pursuing law.
