French filmmaker Manuel Boursinhac directs the action thriller La Mentale. Samuel Le Bihan plays Dris, a criminal who wants to go straight. Major mob boss Yanis (Samy Naceri) is an old friend who desperately needs Dris' help. However, Dris has already spent enough time in jail and only wants to settle down with his old girlfriend Lise (Marie Guillard). When Dris finally agrees to go along with the plan, he finds his little brother Mel (David Saracino) kidnapped by the villainous Fèche (Michel Duchaussoy). La Mentale received a theatrical release in France in 2002 before going straight-to-video in the rest of Europe. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Watched it in French with the subtitles. It's is as another reviewer has written, a bit more 'real' to the urban gangster. Not the Hollywood type movie that typically portreys Italians as the gangsters being chased by the FBI. This never even includes the cops, just turf wars between bosses. I thought it was a movie worth watching. I would disagree that the English subtitles are not accurate to the actual spoken French.
