UK DVD RELEASE: MONDAY 17th JUNE 2013
Following the success of the incredible BRAQUO series and the unstoppable rise of the Gallic Noir genre, Arrow Films are pleased to announce the release of a brand new French thriller, STATE AFFAIRS.
Making its UK DVD debut on Monday June 17th, STATE AFFAIRS comes from BRAQUO director Éric Valette and features André Dussollier (Micmacs) alongside some of France’s most exciting young acting talent.
STATE AFFAIRS is a suspenseful, action-packed, political thrill-ride revolving around three main characters – a corrupt politician, his henchman, and a hard-boiled female cop.
A plane explodes above the Gulf of Guinea... A prostitute is murdered in a Parisian park.
Thousands of miles separate these two horrific events, and yet Nora Chahyd, a stubborn Parisian policewoman, believes there's a connection, much to her superior’s chagrin.
As Nora investigates, the murders and betrayals continue to stack up, until she finds herself in the midst of a complex government cover-up, a conspiracy which goes all the way up to the President’s office.
"A bloody game of cat and mouse"
Alongside the aforementioned Braquo, other titles in Arrow’s Gallic Noir locker include Maison Close, and a brand new title, Jo, starring Jean Reno, arriving in August.
Combine these with their array of quality imports from a wide range of other territories – The Killing and Borgen from Denmark, Wallander and Arne Dahl from Sweden, Prisoners Of War from Israel, Jack Irish from Australia – and it’s easy to see why Arrow are fast becoming the UK’s biggest and best distributor of foreign-language entertainment.
