Product Description

Product Description

One of the most magnetic and prominent French actors of the post-war era, Alain Delon’s first outstanding success was in Rene Clement's stylish 1960 thriller Plein Soleil. An international hit that made the most of Delon’s unique blend of menace and charisma, the film cast him as a murderous American traveling abroad. Based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith, Plein Soleil was remade in 1999 as the star-studded The Talented Mr Ripley.

Delon was utilised quite brilliantly by Antonioni as a brash young stockbroker in the enigmatic L’Eclisse, a cornerstone of 1960s European cinema. (L’Eclisse is also being released individually for the first time on 9th July 2007) Thereafter Delon struck up perhaps the most profitable director relationship of his career, working with Jean-Pierre Melville on a number of pictures including Le Samouraï, Le Cercle Rouge, and Melville’s final work, Un Flic (included here), perhaps the director’s most perfect synthesis of style and suspense. All hugely popular with European audiences, these films honed Delon’s existentialist loner persona. Delon’s work was also typified by his complex portrayals of the troubled cops exemplified by Flic Story, and the killers and sexual deviants typified by Alain Jessua’s disturbing and audacious Traitement de Choc.

In many ways the French equivalent of shady English heartthrobs Terence Stamp and Michael Caine, Alain Delon was the most charismatic and menacing star of French cinema in the 60s and 70s. Yet to some, he's most recognisable as the owner of the chiselled cheekbones that graced the cover of The Smiths' album The Queen Is Dead.

He made his name at the dawn of the decade in Rene Clement's stylish thriller Plein Soleil, an adaptation from Patricia Highsmith's novel and later to be remade with Matt Damon and Jude Law as The Talented Mr Ripley.

He cemented his reputation in Antonioni's brilliant L'Eclisse, in which he plays a brash stockbroker who enters into a doomed relationship. He soon became known for playing dark, existential loners - some of them troubled cops, as in 1972's Un Flic and 1975's Flic Story (released on DVD here for the first time) and occasionally even more sinister creatures, as he did in his portrayal of the peculiar Dr Devilers in Alain Jessua's disturbing psychological thriller Traitement de Choc.

Perfectly matched with some of European cinema's most luminous leading ladies (Catherine Deneuve, Monica Vitti) Delon was never as compelling as he was in this era.

He continues to work (next year will see him playing Julius Caesar opposite Gerard Depardieu in the latest "Asterix" adventure, Asterix at the Olympic Games) but you really can't do better than these five films as an introduction to his early work and his glory days. Only the addition of 1970 gangster mega-hit Borsalino would improve the collection.

There was a marvellous time on television in the 70's when an Alain Delon film was never far from being inexplicably hidden away somewhere in the small hours of late night tv.It is really great to revisit some of those films once again in this fine collection.I regret I did not sometimes show them the respect or appreciation they deserved back then and in comparison seeing them again is an absolute positive relief from the many poor films made today. All 5 films are extremely worthwhile watching.I always find myself somehow drawn into French or any European films more than any other so this set , which are loaded with ' atmosphere ' , are a must if anyone feels likewise.This chap has style a plenty.

Wish this set contained other Delon movies other than those already released previously in the English market (Plein Soleil, L'Eclisse, Un Flic, and Flic Story have all been released before), however the picture quality in this set is excellent, and it includes some extra materials for L'Eclisse and Traitement de Choc. Not to mention the latter film has never been out on DVD (and available with English subtitle either) before! This set contains Delon's work with some of the most important directors in his career. So buy it!

First of all, I'd like to congratulate the manufacturers in producing such a smart and handsome set, in white and classy dark blue, that unfolds gate-fold style and even has matching photos on the discs with those of the slots they fit into. Secondly, considering the aforementioned and that it contains five films, four of which are 'essential' French cinema, the low cost also.

Delon is a newcomer to me, achieved by my ongoing love for world cinema and as I explore further beyond the mainstream. 'Plein Soleil' is my favourite here, partly due to my love of the its remake 'The Talented Mr Ripley'.

The sheer coolness of Mr Delon and his classic good looks (only James Dean competes, in my view) allow him to portray suave gangsters, as in 'Un Flic' and 'Flic Story'. Those who want to take their infatuation further can see him frolic in the buff amongst his equally nude 'patients' in the sea, in 'Traitement de Choc'. This one is quite an oddity and will be liked by those who enjoy the works of Michael Crichton and such.

If Alain Delon has wandered onto your DVD radar, then this must be the one to go for. Very highly recommended.

5 films that give a good picture of the 60s-70s cinema featuring one of the most talented and handsome actor of his time (including Plein soleil / first adaptation of Paricia Highsmith novel "The talented Mr. Ripley".
