AKA is a 2023 French action crime film directed by Morgan S. Dalibert, written by Morgan S. Dalibert and Alban Lenoir and starring Alban Lenoir, Eric Cantona and Thibault de Montalembert.
Adam Franco (played by Alban Lenoir) is a multi-identity special ops agent working on behalf of the French government under the helm of the mysterious Kruger (played by Thibault de Montalembert). After finishing a mission in Tunisia, he is assigned a new task by Kruger under the direction of a Senator Marconnet (played by Philippe Résimont): to flush out and eliminate a Sudanese warlord, Moktar Al Tayeb (played by Kevin Layne), who is the prime suspect of a bombing in a Paris hotel.
To get closer to his target, he infiltrates the Pastore crime syndicate and earns the trust of the gangster boss, Victor Pastore (played by Eric Cantona), who has known connections to Al Tayeb. Adam works his way up the ranks by demonstrating his physical capabilities during altercations with a rival gang, led by Egyptian gangleader Amet. He also develops a friendship with fellow gangster Pee Wee (played by Saïdou Camara), who is connected to Al Tayeb. Whilst working for Victor, Adam also unexpectedly bonds with Victor’s step-son, Jonathan (Noé Chabbat).
