French Film Festival: The Last Panthers
Golden Globe® Award winner Samantha Morton, César Award winner Tahar Rahim and Academy-Award® nominee John Hurt star in The Last Panthers, a thrilling crime drama series based on real events. A daring jewel heist bears all the hallmarks of the notorious Pink Panthers gang but with one tragic difference: the death of a little girl sets off a chain of events across Europe. A British insurance loss adjuster (Samantha Morton), her nefarious boss (John Hurt), a French-Algerian cop (Tahar Rahim), and a Serbian gang member (Goran Bogdan) are placed on a dangerous collision course. The trail of diamonds leads to gun trafficking, spiraling backward to Bosnia during the dark days of the Balkan conflict, and through webs of corruption between Marseille, Belgrade, and the high-finance capital of London. The united Europe of organised crime is evolving and a new breed of criminal has emerged – the ‘Banksters’.
