- Language: French, Spanish, Arabic, English, German
Part two of Jean François Richet's epic account of the contrary life and times of France's most famous bank robber and criminal mastermind Jacques Mesrine. Now in the realm of myth and self-deception, and in following Msrine's attempts to align himself with more radical political groups and his burgeoning skills as a master of disguise, Richet's second film unfolds as something more freewheeling and as enjoyable as a good caper movie.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
