The Prey

Synopsis: Bank-robber Franck Adrien is serving a prison sentence after robbing a national bank. Before he was caught he managed to hide the money but now it's not just the police who are looking for the money. His cell-mate is Jean-Louis Maurel, an alleged rapist/child molester who claims his innocence. When the court finds Maurel not guilty, Maurel promises to look after Franck's family when he gets out. But one day, a man called Manuel Carrega tells Franck that Maurel is a suspected serial killer and that Franck's family is in danger. Franck escapes from prison and police officer Claire Linné and her team take up the chase.

I was a bit tense.

Will they let us do it again?

We'll do it as often as we like.

Adrien, finish in the visitor's room

in 5 minutes.

I love you.

In spite of the aggro

that's brought you?

That'll all soon be over.

Amlie drew this for you.

This how she see's us.

When you get out...

So, was it good?

The next time we'll make it a 3...

or a 4.

What's the big idea?.

You wanna leave here

in a coffin?

So what?

Makes more for you.

You know where

the goddamn cash is.

Is it safe?

I can put some buddies

on the job.

They'll guard it

'til we get out.

I wouldn't trust

any buddies of yours.


And any reason why I

should trust YOU?

That's a nice drawing.

Is it your daughter's?

I didn't think

we were on speaking terms.

It was good like that.

You know...

...there's not much nice

in the world.

You gotta hang on to it.

Come on you two,


Time for a walk

Why I would go out today?

Nice weather.

You know the risk

I'd be taking.

You didn't have to assault that girl.

I did NOT do it.

Yeah...I was forgetting.

And I s'pose your stickups

were done by your twin brother.

Or you wanted to pay for

your sick mother's operation.

Can I go now?

OK you scum...

move it!

Everyone here?

Let's go!

[Speaking Russian]

Isn't your rock-spider pal coming?

Scared, is he?

He's saying...

I don't give a f***

what apes say.

Translate that!

I'm innocent.

I know I'll be cleared eventually.

I've got to survive

in this rat-hole.

I'm called a rock-spider.

They want me dead.

I continue praying my ordeal

will come to an end.

You sure?

You get out.

Without making touble.

If you don't wanna cop sh*t...

...then scram.

Don't you move.

What do you want?

As you don't go out,

we've come to

pay you a visit.


You hear...repeat it.


Go on...repeat it.


That means thank you.

You'll repeat it.


We'll see if the little girls

get you excited now.

That's enough.

Qu'est-ce tu veux?.

We better go down

before there's serious sh*t.

That's enough...stop!

Shut up...get out!

You shouldn't've

got involved.

Because you defended him.

That's not what

the report says.

The employment agency's

got nothing for me.

I can't afford the nanny.

I can't afford

the speech therapist.

And we've got all

that money.

Do you realise that

this guy Franck Adrien,

went into hiding near our place

after his stick-up.

In Nivre.

He's been put with me

to protect me.

I'm there to protect you.

That's true.

Why don't you tell me

where you've hidden it?

I'd just take what we need.

Trust me for once.

The reason I'm here's

because I was trusting.

I don't get to sleep.

Every other day,

they forget my medication.

The lawyer's going to see

what he can do.

You believe I'm going

to get out of this?

Of course.

Her mother said to the judge

that she'd invented everything.

He's going to question her

and she's going to crack.

You're getting out...

it's going to happen.

You'll give me a child.

You didn't need to

bring her in here.

This is no place for her.

She wanted to come.

What'd she say?

She wanted to see her father.

While I'm in here

I'm not her father.

I don't want her to see me

as a convict.

I'm sorry, Franck.

We miss you so.

I miss both of you, too.

Amlie, you'll fall over.


What a cutie!

What's your name?

She can't reply.

She has speaking problems.

She's going to

learn to speak.

It'll take time.

She may be right

to take her time.

Say goodbye.

'Bye, Amlie.

You make a move

and you're a vegetable.

You wanna kill me, Novick?

Don't you wanna get your dough?
