Description: Now back in France, Mesrine is finally in police custody and facing justice for his crimes. After escaping a courtroom and kidnapping the judge at gunpoint, Mesrine is declared Public Enemy Number 1 and is eventually condemned to a maximum-security prison where he writes his memoirs, establishing himself as a household name and a nationwide anti-hero. Mesrine stages another daring escape and disappears, taunting the police and reinventing himself as a celebrity criminal through his manipulation of the media. After such a monumental rise, comes the inevitable fall as the police close in, bringing his life to full bloody circle.
