Synopsis

The French Connection is William Friedkin's gritty, Oscar-winning police drama where two tough New York City cops try to intercept a huge heroin shipment coming from France. Police partners Popeye Doyle (Gene Hackman) and Buddy Russo (Roy Scheider) put a candy store under surveillance based on a hunch that something fishy was going on. Eventually, it turns out the proprietors are involved in one of the biggest narcotics smuggling rings on either side of the Atlantic, so the cops go to work. Doyle is a short-tempered alcoholic bigot, but he is nevertheless a hard-working and dedicated police officer. Doyle's nemesis is Alain Charnier (Fernando Rey), a suave and urbane gentleman who is a criminal and one of the largest suppliers of pure heroin to North America. As money troubles begin for the hoods they decide to kill Popeye and Buddy to give them enough room to bring in the heroin.

The French Connection follows two New York detectives from narcotics who uncover a drug smuggling job. As they struggle to dismantle the operation, they have to hunt down wealthy heroin smuggler Alain Charnier – a mission that proves to be quite the feat.

Explosive and tense, The French Connection will keep you on the edge of the seat. Despite being released in 1971, the movie perfectly stands the test of time, proving that great cinema never gets old.

Get the popcorn ready. You'll be in for a wild ride.
