Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment is pleased to announce the UK release of The Informant - a gripping crime thriller by Julien Leclercq’s that is inspired by real events - available on DVD and Blu-ray from 25 August 2014.
In order to free his family from financial worries, Marc Duval (Gilles Lellouche - Mesrine: Killer Instinct, Little White Lies, Tell No One), a Frenchman expatriated to Gibraltar, becomes a spy for French customs.
From petty trafficking to shady cargo, he progressively wins the trust of Claudio Lanfredi (Riccardo Scamarcio - Loose Cannons), a powerful cocaine importer tied to the dangerous Columbian cartels.
This in-depth immersion in the world of drug trafficking forces Marc to take increasing risks. But, as he rises in the cartel hierarchy, he also discovers easy money, temptation and a luxury lifestyle.
Permanently living on a knife edge, only his lies keep him alive. When the English customs join the game to arrest Lanfredi, it becomes even more dangerous and Marc's family risks paying the price.
