The Connection - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Directed and co-written by Cédric Jimenez, "The Connection" was entirely shot on 35 mm and is the European flipside to William Friedkin's "The French Connection." A stylish, 70's-period crime thriller inspired by true events, it tells the story of real-life Marseilles magistrate Pierre Michel (Jean Dujardin) 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), 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.

MOVIE REVIEW

The French Connection is one of the most famous crime-thrillers in cinematic history… and now the French have taken up the story, looking at the events that unfolded on their side of the pond. Naturally, since you wouldn’t call French fries “French fries” while in France, this movie is simply called The Connection.
