The World Is Yours is an action comedy film directed by Romain Gavras and released in 2018. The film stars Karim Leklou as Farès, a drug dealer who dreams of leaving his criminal lifestyle behind and starting a legitimate business. However, his mother Danny (Isabelle Adjani) and former boss Pierrot (Vincent Cassel) keep pulling him back into the world of crime.

The film takes place primarily in France, with occasional trips to Spain and Morocco. Farès is a low-level drug dealer who has some ambitious plans to expand his business. However, things go awry when a drug deal goes wrong and Farès finds himself in debt to the wrong people. His mother Danny, who is herself a bit of a criminal mastermind, steps in to help him out of trouble, but only on the condition that he agrees to one final job.

This job is a big one, involving a trip to Spain to pick up a large shipment of drugs. However, Farès quickly realizes that things are not as they seem. His accomplices are not exactly reliable, and the Spanish drug dealer they are dealing with is not someone to be trifled with.

Meanwhile, Farès' mother Danny has her own problems. She is trying to convince her ex-husband (played by Sam Spruell) to sell their nightclub business so that she can use the proceeds to retire in luxury. However, her ex-husband is not exactly cooperative, leading to some intense confrontations between the two characters.

One of the things that sets The World Is Yours apart from other crime films is its playful sense of humor. Despite the sometimes-grim subject matter, the film is filled with witty one-liners and cartoonish visual gags. There are several sequences that play like mini heist films, with Farès (and his unlikely crew) attempting to pull off various schemes.

The film is also notable for its strong performances from the lead actors. Leklou brings a believable mix of toughness and vulnerability to the role of Farès, while Adjani and Cassel are both charismatic and entertaining as his mother and former boss, respectively. There are also some great supporting turns from the likes of François Damiens and Oulaya Amamra.

Ultimately, The World Is Yours is a fun, fast-paced crime caper that should appeal to fans of movies like Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and The Big Lebowski. The film's combination of action, comedy, and stylish visuals make it a highly entertaining ride from start to finish.
