The Emperor of Paris
At the time of Napoleon's reign, Francois Vidocq is known to have escaped from many of the country's big prisons, and he is therefore a legend in the underworld of Paris. When he is charged for a murder he has not committed, he offers to cooperate with the police in exchange for his freedom. Despite his great success as a detective, he raises the anger of the police force while the mafia has put a price on his head. The lead role in this adventure drama is played by Vincent Cassell, who has previously been seen in films such as Black Swan, Ocean's Twelve and Jason Bourne.
