A French police magistrate spends years trying to take down one of the country’s most powerful drug rings.
If La French succeeds at anything it is in helping prove the fact that it doesn’t matter where a film is shot or in which language it is spoken, nothing can pull the emotional impact out of a story like over-familiarity. And this isn’t in due in any significant part to the drug kingpin take-down story which audiences already know from William Friedkin’s 1971 masterpiece The French Connection, but rather from the same well-trodden plot points and characters we’ve seen countless times before.
Cédric Jimenez’s film certainly has all checkpoints covered on a surface level »

Last year was only the second time in over two decades that French movies passed the 100 million international tix sales benchmark. Past decade average is around 80 million.
