Inspired by the life of France's most notorious criminal, MESRINE: KILLER INSTINCT charts the rise and fall of the often marvelled, yet utterly ruthless gangster Jacques Mesrine. The films follow the incredible series of hold ups, prison breaks, and kidnappings throughout the 60s and 70s. Almost 30 years since his spectacular death, shot down in a hail of police bullets, the Cesar Award-winning team of writer/director Jean-Francois Richet and Vincent Cassel bring to the big screen the story of the man behind the legend.
