Bill C’s review – 3 out of 5
The Connection is a french thriller set in the 1970s. A magistrate (Jean Dujardin from The Artist) devotes his life to bringing down a finch drug syndicate. It’s a companion piece to the French Connection, only made 40+ years later and from the perspective of the French justice system.
While not as gritty (or as good) as the French Connection this also has a gritty view as a cop gets totally caught up in his job and puts everything at risk.
If you don’t mind french subtitles this is an above average film.
