VIKTOR (a.k.a. Turquoise) Star – Gerard Depardieu

Legendary film star and newly minted citizen of the Russian Federation Gerard Depardieu will star in action director Philippe Martinez’s “VIKTOR (a.k.a. Turquoise)”

Gérard Depardieu is Victor Lambert, a big hearted former gangster who was notorious for his art heists. After 15 years behind bars in France,Viktor Lambert returns to Moscow, the city where he once lived and still passionately loves. He is a man with a broken heart who embarks on a ruthless war–a manhunt in the Moscow night– to avenge the death of his son who was killed by diamond smugglers. Viktor is helped by his life-long love and former accomplice, ALEXANDRA IVANOVA.

It is not necessary to introduce Gérard Depardieu, French and Russian actor extraordinaire, whose performances have secured him a place in our culture as a screen legend. The excess and genius he brought to his roles as Cyrano, Colonel Chabert, Vatel, Rasputin, Danton, and as Obelix and many others have earned him all the honors of the Seventh Art and the eternal love of the public. With his explosive power, sensitivity, generosity, and his taste for art, Gérard Depardieu inherently brings authenticity, tenderness, pain, and strength to Viktor’s character.
