Remastered 20th Anniversary Edition
Twenty years after this six-part British miniseries won an International Emmy®, a newly remastered version brings it to life more vividly than ever before. This riveting thriller also inspired Steven Soderbergh’s Oscar®-winning film.
Filmed on location in Pakistan, Hamburg, and London, Traffik lays bare the international drug trade by tracing three intersecting lives: Jack, a British government minister who finds the scourge of heroin striking too close to home; Helen, a woman who embarks on a daring survival strategy after her husband’s arrest; and Fazal, a Pakistani peasant who works for a menacing drug lord. Starring Bill Paterson (Little Dorrit, Smiley’s People), Lindsay Duncan (Rome, Under the Tuscan Sun), and Julia Ormond (Legends of the Fall) in her extraordinary film debut.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE interview with writer Simon Moore and producer Brian Eastman, extended U.K. broadcast version of episode 6, photo gallery, production notes, and cast filmographies.
This, the original Traffik, makes the film version look small and choppy and incoherent.
For instance, both highlight the futility of supply-side-only approach to the drug war, that treatment and other demand-side approaches are necessary.
This is a brilliant production with wonderful photography, crisp directing, and top-notch acting.
