Les chants de Mandrin / Mandrin's Songs / Smugglers' Songs (2011) DVD9
A Gallic Robin Hood, Louis Mandrin was a folk-hero outlaw in 18th-century France. After his brother's hanging, Mandrin began military-style operations, trafficking contraband from outside France's borders, thus thwarting and enraging the state's vicious, widely despised tax collectors. Mandrin was eventually executed in 1755, an event described at the start of Ameur-Zaimeche's film.
The highwayman himself never appears here. Instead we follow his organization's surviving members as they stage "one last campaign" in his memory.
