When on the second November 1979 will be shot on the street in Paris, drew on all of France. Mesrine gruesomely fascinating life cried out for a movie adaptation. Director Jean-François Richet (Assault on Precint 13) knew at the same time, however, that the substance was overcome in two-hour movie barely. Therefore, he splitted up Mesrine story in two parts. The first part Public Enemy No.. 1 – murder instinct told in classic style gangster film about the rise in France, Mesrine crooks scene. Public Enemy No.. 1 – death drive (Start date: 21.5) shows Mesrine as degenerate public enemy No 1, the skins swim rapidly away. In 1956, the jovial, 19-year-old Jacques (Vincent Cassel) collected in the Algerian war. When truncated, hearted man, he returns back in 1959, the Paris home.

Mesrine is ordered to solitary confinement and tortured by several guards brutally. But it can not break the officials. On the contrary, Mesrine hatches an escape plan from the high-security prison of its own. Public Enemy No.. 1 – killing instinct in front of genre needs role models like Scarface (1983) American Gangster (2007) not to hide. Richet was achieved with the outrageously expensive biopic, based on Mesrine in prison constituted an autobiography, a rousing thriller. Over the full period shown by the young filmmakers, a feeling for atmospheric, sumptuous images, consistent dialogue and perfectly arranged, in Heat (1996), reminiscent action sequences. Brilliant in the supporting roles filled by Vincent Cassel stands out in the title role. With constantly changing appearance – he took during the nine months filming 20 pounds – he shows oppressively intense all facets of the dangerous killer, ranging from charming flirtation attempts to gruesome outbreaks of violence. Reward for the effort was a César, the Cassel for his tour de force this year received. (Florian Koch)
