Mesrine: Killer Instinct

The first part introduces us to Jacques Mesrine (Vincent Cassel) at the beginning of his true-life career of bank heists, prison breaks and kidnapping through the '60s and '70s across three continents. Recently returned from the war in Algeria, Mesrine soon bores of the 9 to 5 life and gradually drifts into a life of crime under the tutelage of veteran gangster Guido (Gérard Depardieu). He quickly discovers he has a gift for robbing banks and forms a duo with lover Jeanne Schneider (Cécile de France) to rival Bonnie and Clyde. When the couple is finally hunted down in the Arizona desert, Mesrine is sentenced to ten years in a maximum-security penitentiary. But he is about to prove that no prison is big enough to contain him.
