Continuing France's love affair with the American gangster movie, Mesrine: A Film in Two Parts (formerly known as Public Enemy Number One) tells the true story of Jacques Mesrine who became his country's most notorious bad guy throughout the 1970's. Arch-fiend to some and folk hero to others, Mesrine's criminal career spanned nearly two decades of brazen bank robberies, breathtaking prison breaks, and ingenious identity changes – all meticulously and stylishly recreated on an epic scale. Vincent Cassel, one of France's most magnetic leading men, heads a heavyweight cast (including Oscar-nominee Gerard Depardieu) and gives a star-making performance as Mesrine.
