About this drawing

Banlieue 13 (also called District 13 or District B13) is a 2004 French action movie.  I watched the movie a couple of years back, and I'm a fan of it.  When Casino Royale came out, people were marvelling at the "free running" chase sequence in the beginning of the movie.  Well, this movie features a better example of Parkour (check out this scene), and besides, it stars David Belle, who is one of the founders of this sport!  The movie is short and packed with excellent stunts (from Belle and co-star Cyril Raffaelli), and has a good story too.  Luc Besson had a hand in writing this, and it is directed by Pierre Morel.  It has nice techno music by Da Octopuss.

This drawing was done with pencils, ballpoint pen and oil pastels.  It shows the three main characters in the movie — from right to left, David Belle as Leito, Cyril Raffaelli as the cop Damien, and Tony D'Amario as the gangster K2.
