L'Outsider Christophe Barratier ('The Chorus') tells the true story of France's greatest financial scandal – the frog of Wall Street! Before the subprime mortgage crisis began unfolding in 2008, causing chaos in world markets and misery among millions of homeowners, another financial apocalypse was already underway at one of France’s most prestigious banks. Whether Kerviel was the rogue trader his employers claimed he was, or whether they were aware of his actions and turned a blind eye as long as he made them buckets of cash, has been the major question ever since the affair broke out. In ‘The Outsider’, adapted from Kerviel’s 2010 autobiographical account, the filmmakers clearly take the side of their young culprit, showing how he was caught in a Gordon Gekko-esque web of greed, machismo and unchecked high-wire capitalism, raking in millions for his bank - and much less for himself - until stock prices collapsed and the cat got out of the bag. Cast includes Arthur Dupont, Francois-Xavier Demaison, Sabrina Ouazani, Tewfik Jallab and Thomas Coumans. (Subtitles) France 2016 Christophe Barratier 117m
