Marc Duval is struggling to support his family in France as he is faced with an increased financial pressure. However, he is offered a chance to better his life by moving to the Gibraltar off the Spanish coast and becoming a spy for French customs for a more than reasonable income. Unfortunately, the job is not without its risks as he must go undercover as a trustworthy confidante to formidable cocaine smuggler named Claudio Lanfredi. With this operation comes plenty of temptation into a lifestyle of unmatchable luxury, but when border patrol makes a move to arrest Lanfredi, Marc is forced to hide himself and his family from the wrath of Lanfredi's Columbian drug trafficking associates. It soon becomes clear that Marc has to decide what's worth dying for; his family or his job?
This high action crime thriller is based on the autobiographical book entitled 'L'Aviseur' by Marc Fievet, who was himself thrust into a world of unimaginable danger in his position on the French border patrol. It has been directed by Julien Leclercq ('The Assault', 'Chrysalis') and written by Abdel Raouf Dafri ('A Prophet', 'Mesrine: Killer Instinct'). 'The Informant' is due for UK release on April 25th 2014.
