The Connection

Set in 1970 France, a newly appointed magistrate takes on a crime lord and his drugs syndicate. Marseille was the world’s heroin capital in the Sixties; a rise in organised crime led to a conspiracy to smuggle billions of dollars of heroin into the United States through the port. A pacey action film in which Zampa depicts the mobster and the magistrate as two alpha males; the opposite sides of the same coin. The two actors were intentionally made to look very similar in appearance for the film. (TIP the good guy wears a tie)
