Saturday, August 14, 2010 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

Empire magazine and the BFI team up again to bring Movie-Con back with a vengeance. In response to popular demand, we're beginning the weekend early to bring you a currently top-secret film screening followed by a specially programmed Dark Fibre night on Friday. The rest of the weekend will be packed with a showcase of the very best in upcoming action, horror, fantasy and sci-fi, including exclusive footage fresh from being premiered at San Diego Comic-Con.

Retired gangster Charley Mattei (a brilliant Jean Reno, Leon), shot 22 times in a brutal assassination attempt, survives (hence the title in France l’Immortel) to exact revenge. Paralysed in his right arm, he simply learns to shoot with his left. High-adrenaline, action-packed crime drama, based on the true story of infamous French ‘Godfather’ Jaques Imbert.

Director: Richard Berry
Jean Reno
France 2009, 115 mins, French with English subtitles
