Could we have the first big international hit of 2013? While we’re hoping that honor goes to Wong Kar-wai‘s recently premiered The Grandmaster, the French production Mobius is making a strong case.

While we didn’t understand about half the teaser due to our language barrier, it still displays a sense of intrigue, especially seeing The Artist star Jean Dujardin in a role like this one. He’s joined by Pulp Fiction‘s Tim Roth and The Kid with a Bike‘s Cécile De France, and one can see the trailer for Eric Rochant’s drama, set in the world of high finance, below.
Mobius arrives in international cinemas this February with no US date yet.
