Although he’ll be seen in the next Hollywood productions from Martin Scorsese and George Clooney, this year’s best actor winner Jean Dujardin is still splitting his time up with foreign productions and we’ve got the first look at one today.

Eric Rochant’s drama is set in the world of high finance and follows an FSB officer who falls in love with his agent, an American woman who works as a trader in a Russian bank. And since its difficult to glean from the trailer, Roth plays a Russian oligarch suspected of laundering money through his bank.
