The film, which is marked on Thursday January 17 in Colombia, also starring Charlie Hunnam, leader of the hit television series Sons of Anarchy, is based on the real life of Henri Charrière, the famous Frenchman who escaped from the Presidents of Cayenne in French Guiana.

It is inspired by the original 1973 film, the box office phenomenon of the decade, with Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. In turn, both are based on the best seller published in 1969, written by Charrière himself on his epic story, "to take the long and devastating path to the salvation of one of the workspaces, punishments and transit in French Guiana from which he managed to escape. It was a place where only 12% of the prison population survived , says the review.

"Escaping was not a viable alternative, but survivor either. Only in 1946 was the Bureau abolished when prisoners were repatriated. In 1953, the prison system was defended. But Papillon was not there when it happened.
