State Affairs in June
Arrow Films have announced 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.
Adapted from award-winning French writer Dominique Manotti’s novel about a string of killings linking an arms-dealing middleman to the upper echelons of French political power, STATE AFFAIRS is a gripping and fast-paced thriller, featuring multiple plot twists and turns en route to an explosive finale where Nora must fight for her life in order to clear her name.
(Alongside Braquo, other titles in Arrow’s Gallic Noir locker include Maison Close, and a brand new title, Jo, starring Jean Reno, arriving in August.)
