To pay for his heavy debts, Marc Duval, a French expat in Gibraltar and a bar owner whose customers are drug dealers, accepts to become a one-time informant for the French Customs. Caught up in a web of political intrigue and illicit drug trade, Marc Duval quickly becomes a pawn in an international power play among drug lords and customs officials (Todd Brown, Twitch film). As Marc is constantly struggling to save his skin, tension amounts in this thriller based on the real life of Marc Fiévet. In tribute to the 70s American thrillers, Julien Leclercq recreates the 80s with great precision exploring at the same time the dirty deals schemed by the French and British Customs. Tahar Rahim as the conflicted custom agent and the dangerously charismatic Ricardo Scarmacio are part with Gilles Lellouche of “the three dream actors in this thrilling game of chess and manipulations » (Marilyne Letertre). « Gilles Lellouche (…) appears more and more like the possible Lino Ventura of our times. Which gives The Informant a certain stature » (Christophe Carrière, L’Express.fr). The Informant, a captivating thriller that will put you into a cold sweat!
