Gang Story - Preview & competition

Gang Story

Preview by Jack Foley

BASED on a true story, Gang Story (Les Lyonnais) is the epic tale of Edmond Vidal (Gerard Lanvin) – one of the French underworld’s most notorious figures, having led the Gang des Lyonnais to a spate of successful armed robberies in the 1970s.

Overcoming dangerous gang rivalries and battles with the police, Vidal survived to enjoy the good life…until now.

With his life-long friend Serge Suttel (Tcheky Karyo) in trouble, Vidal gets drawn into one last job. But fighting against his own history and facing devastating consequences, is this the end for Vidal?

Fans of gangster films such as Mesrine and Public Enemies will not want to miss Gang Story – an explosive action packed thriller where relationships collide in a violent saga of retribution that will keep fans gripped till the very end.

Gang Story was written and directed by Olivier Marchal (36) and will be released in cinemas by Entertainment One on April 6, 2012.

You can see it before that, however, as part of the Rendezvous French film festival this week in London. The film is being screened at the Curzon Mayfair on Saturday, March 24, at 6pm.
