Escaped convict Franck (an uncharacteristically tough and muscular Albert Dupontel), keeps one step ahead of the police as he desperately tries to track down a psychopathic serial killer with whom he once shared his prison cell and his confidences. The nutcase comes across as a nerd but has apparently fabricated incredibly incriminating evidence implicating Franck in a series of murders. Franck's family is in great danger but how can he protect them if he's a fugitive and Public Enemy #1, trying to evade capture while proving his innocence? Only policewoman Claire (the gorgeous Alice Taglioni, CINEMANIA 2008 guest star), in charge of the pursuit, has womanly instincts that create nagging doubts as to Franck's guilt.
THE PREY is high-octane escapist entertainment, an edge-of-the-seat suspense thriller so good that Hollywood has already bought the rights to a re-make. Director Éric Valette captivated CINEMANIA audiences with STATE AFFAIRS in 2010 and the signature camera work and sound design of THE PREY led to great box office in France this past season.
