The Connection

  • Cast: Jean Dujardin, Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette

Pierre Michel (Dujardin) is a driven Marseilles magistrate who sets out with the support of local police to catch drug kingpin 'Tany' Zampa (Lellouche). Despite an eclectic soundtrack of 70s and 80s pop and Djuardin's winning performance, there are no surprises here and it rarely shows the depth to support its challenging length.
