A new French Connection? Here, though, the drug of choice is cannabis and the fields of crime are actually those of traditional French agriculture – the breathtaking Camargue – as we see what desperate farmers may need to do to save the family farm and their very way of life. A heady mixture of Breaking Bad, film noir, and critical social documentary, Teyssier’s debut feature provides a very different vision of a countryside known for rugged beauty and tradition.
