  Robert de Niro has done it, Sylvester Stallone, too. At the end of the food chain now Vincent Cassel, who rose as before, the two Hollywood stars for a role of 20 kilos. To the bloated gangster Jacques Mesrine in Public Enemy No. 1 – death instinct credible to embody the French method actor turned to his diet radically. Cassel was eating five times a day for four months, combined with beer syrup and allowed himself 1300 calories a strong milk shakes. Medically questionable, the effort was worth the charismatic actor. Cassel was awarded for his role in the recently César for best actor. , Concentrated, director Jean-François Richet Mesrine in the rise of small-time crook to professional gangster shows him to the continuation of the death instinct as a self-infatuated media hero, desperate to knit his own legend. After his spectacular escape from a Canadian prison Mesrine it pulls back to France in 1973, where he will soon be the merciless Commissioner Boussard (Olivier Gourmet taken). But would not Mesrine Mesrine, if he does not yet have an escape plan in store. Located in the courthouse, he captures the judge and can pile up again.

Richet reveled in Public Enemy No.. 1 – killing instinct still in blues and reds, he designed a death wish for a different color that corresponds with its brown and orange accent the changing temporal and thematic focus of the second part. Although developed here some storyline somewhat frayed and acts as a less concentrated in one part, and Richet a torture scene stylized exaggeration of a journalist selbstzweckhaft, bringing Public Enemy No.. 1 – Jacques Mesrine, the death instinct farewell after four hours in an overall better end.
