FAST CONVOY
Filmfest 2016

Four cars. 1800 Kilometers. 12 hours. 1.4 tons of cannabis resin. The latest actioner by Frédéric Schoendoerffer puts the pedal to the metal in Malaga, Spain and doesn’t let up until we reach the French border. On the way, the tough-as-nails smugglers headed by Benoît Magimel (THE PIANO TEACHER) run into a road block that leaves one of their drivers dead, and forces them to take a hostage, Nadia (Reem Kherci). A stylish and breathless thriller in the mode of THE TRANSPORTER and DRIVE.
