In 'The Godmother', French icon, Isabelle Huppert, stars as Patience Portefeux, an underpaid and overworked, middle-aged French-Arabic police interpreter, who seizes an opportunity when life throws her a curve-ball.

In charge of phone surveillance for a narcotics police unit, Patience uses her insider knowledge and police resources to build her own crime network. When she switches sides to become a wholesale narcotics trafficker.

Based on the award-winning novel by Hannelore Cayre - who also co-wrote the script - 'The Godmother' is a subtly crafted blend of French noir, drama and comedy with a triumphant performance by Huppert as a defiantly independent woman making her mark on the world with a bang rather than a whimper.
