Vincent Cassel, Mesrine



Mesrine, a two-part, four-hour biography of the notorious French bank robber, jail breaker and killer Jacques Mesrine, has already earned Vincent Cassel the Best Actor C├ęsar for his mesmerizing portrait of France's one-time Public Enemy No. 1. In a wide-ranging interview, Cassel, the son of '60s and '70s French icon Jean-Pierre Cassel, discusses his beginnings as an acrobat, his initial disdain for French cinema and love of American movies and his frequent collaborations with his wife, Monica Bellucci (18 minutes).
