From French-Greek director Romain Gavras (Our Day Will Come) THE WORLD IS YOURS – which comes to digital download, Blu-ray and DVD on 27th May 2019 – is a flamboyant heist movie starring Karim Leklou (The Prophet), Vincent Cassell (Mesrine Part 1 & 2, La Haine) and the legendary Isabelle Adjani (La Reine Margot, One Deadly Summer).
François is a petty drug dealer whose dream is to settle down and set up a Mr Freeze’s ice lolly franchise in Morocco. But his ambition is smashed to pieces when he discovers that his own mother, a compulsive gambler and seasoned scammer, has burnt his savings that he was relying on to start their brand-new life. Putin, the local gang leader, offers François the opportunity to do one last job in Spain so that he can make the money he desperately needs. Things go from bad to worse when the deal goes wrong and everyone around him gets involved: his disillusioned love Lamya, his stupid former father-in-law who just got out of prison, two inseparable and uncontrollable wannabe gangsters and last but not least… his glamorous and manipulative mother.
From the producer of Spring Breakers, THE WORLD IS YOURS (which takes its title from the gangster classic Scarface) is a hilarious joyride through modern day Europe, and while touching on some of the harsher realities, this comic caper is full of verve, humour, visual sophistication and features wonderful star turns from Cassel and Adjani.
