Product Description:

THE CRIMSON RIVERS: Jean Reno reprises his role as a laconic tough cop in Mathieu Kassovitz's disturbing thriller, THE CRIMSON RIVERS. Kassovitz, who rose to fame with his compelling racial drama HATE, brings his signature flare for character development and subtle direction to this unlikely alpine murder mystery. A horrifically mutilated corpse found in a remote mountain village signifies a serious enough crime to call in Parisian detective Pierre Niemans (Jean Reno). Meanwhile, less than 200 miles away, the young upstart detective Kerkerian (HATE's Vincent Cassel) investigates a similarly bizarre crime, the defacement of a young girl's grave. As the two intrepid detectives pursue their cases--Niemans examining bizarre circumstances at a local university and Kerkerian interviewing the dead girl's recalcitrant mother (now a cloistered nun)--the two investigations pitch violently towards each other, forcing the detectives to join forces as they recognize the horrifying implications that may link the seemingly isolated crimes. The precarious mountain locale acts as a fittingly terse setting for Kassovitz's tight direction (and surprise ending) as well as Reno and Cassel's powerfully quirky performances, all of which make THE CRIMSON RIVERS a breathtaking and gut-wrenching instant genre classic.

THE CRIMSON RIVERS 2: rench filmmaker Olivier Dahan directs this sequel to international hit CRIMSON RIVERS; the script, based on a novel by Jean-Christophe Grange, was adapted by Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT). The creepy, fast-paced narrative follows police detective Pierre Niemans (Jean Reno), who this time undertakes an investigation of a monastery in the Lorraine. His team uncovers a corpse hidden in the wall, and this raises suspicions of ritual murders. Meanwhile, police captain Reda (Benoît Magimel) has picked up a mysterious and confused man who has the same DNA as Jesus Christ. Niemans and Reda team up, and soon their path leads them to the dark organization known as the "Angels of the Apokalypse," where the evidence is mounting that the end of the world is nigh.
