'Poldark' meets 'Games of Thrones' in this epic historical action thriller focused on the dramatic Parisienne underworld battles that occurred during Napoleon's early 1800's reign. Under the reign of Napoleon, François Vidocq (Vincent Cassel, 'Black Swan') cuts a notorious figure in the Paris underworld: he is the only man to have escaped the country's most terrifying penal colonies. After being falsely accused of murder, Vidocq makes a deal with the head of the Police: in exchange for his freedom, Vidocq will help the police fight the criminal classes. Despite obtaining exceptional results, he provokes the hostility of both the police and the criminals, who put a price on his head... Cassel is the perfect period anti-hero in this violent, impressively staged historical action thriller also starring Olga Kurylenko ('Oblivion'), Freya Mavor ('Skins') and August Diehl ('Inglourious Bastards').
