The Connection, 2014 – ★★★½

I didn’t know much about the film before going in to the cinema. Around half an hour in I thought it was shaping up to be a pretty standard police procedural.

As the plot develops and begins to twist and turn the hook is there – what is the price of justice?

Pierre Michel has an addictive personality. He’s beaten gambling, now he’s stuck on putting Gaëtan Zampa behind bars. But at what cost?

If you view this simply as a crime drama you’re going to be disappointed. Instead look at it as a character study, focusing on one man’s battle with himself. With a healthy dose of corruption and justice thrown in for good measure.
