No country loves the crime genre quite as much as the French. Sure, it might have been derived from the States, but it was the French who really took it to their hearts, giving directors like Sam Fuller and Alfred Hitchcock the critical respect they craved, and reinventing it with the likes of "À bout de souffle" and "Rififi," while many of the best recent examples, like Jacques Audiard's "The Beat That My Heart Skipped" and "A Prophet," came from France. And if the French crime picture has one actor firmly associated with the genre, their Robert De Niro or Al Pacino, it's Vincent Cassel.

We caught it during its festival run a couple of years ago at the Festival Du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal -- you can check out our review here -- and we're heartened to learn that the director's next effort has landed an international star, and is likely to boost his profile.
