roger borniche, ispettore della surete' nationale, e' famoso per la sua abilita' di investigatore, cosicche', quando un feroce criminale, emile buisson, evade, il commissario capo, acceso rivale della polizia giudiziaria, si affida a lui per battere sul tempo i colleghi nella caccia al pericoloso delinquente. in capo a una settimana borniche scopre il rifugio di buisson, ma l'uomo, che ha gia' fatto tre vittime, gli sfugge. poiche' i giorni passano e il folle assassino continua a uccidere, mentre borniche sembra ormai incapace di snidarlo, il "capo" gli toglie di mano le indagini. un nuovo delitto di buisson, pero', fa si' che, malgrado tutto, sia di nuovo borniche a stragli alle costole. la caccia si conclude, in una locanda di campagna, con la cattura di buisson, che il tribunale condanna a morte.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Flic Story is an uninspired but serviceable period thriller with Alain Delon's honest cop tracking down Jean-Louis Trintignant's psychotic killer in post-war France. The true story is better than the execution, which mixes good but sparing location work with a lot of studio interiors to not always seamless effect, but it's only in the last couple of far too brief scenes where Delon and Trintignant's characters get to know each other that the film really shows what it could have been.

The letterboxed transfer on Kino's Region 1 NTSC DVD is more than acceptable but less than outstanding, while the extras consist of brief stills gallery, trailer and unsubtitled trailers for 9 other Delon titles - The Sicilian Clan, Borsalino and Co, Two Men in Town, Mort d'un Pourri, Trois Hommes a Abbatre, Pour la Peau d'un Flic, Le Battant, Parole de Flic and Ne Reveilles pas un Flic Qui Dort.

Not bad, but no Melville 4 Dec 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Flic Story relates the true story of a relatively honest French detective (Delon) attempting to find an escaped and very dangerous criminal (Trintignant). Almost immediately out of the mental institution, Trintignant goes on a cold-blooded killing spree, which includes the murder of a police officer. Delon's associates prefer beating up suspects to exhort confessions, but Delon prefers a softer, low key style. An obligatory subway chase scene is included.

This movie is good, but not in the same league as Melville's Le Samourai or Le Cercle Rouge. Delon is cool of course (and so is Trintignant) but Melville adds those little touches that enhance the atmosphere and add depth to the characters. I definitely recommend this film to devoted fans of French gangster films. For those not as familiar with the genre, I would try Melville's films first.

This was a great Alain Delon movie, and if you are a fan of Mr. Delon, then you will really enjoy it.

Who's Cooler -- Alain Delon or Alain Delon? 30 Aug 2008
By EddieLove - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Delon defines cool as a cop hunting down super-psycho gangster Trintignant in post-war Paris. You don't get the thrilling cinematic high of a Melville picture in this largely set-bound but colorful production, but it's fun and Delon is riveting. (JTL on the other hand, is such a humourless, dead-eyed, whack-job it's hard to see how he could come to lead a criminal gang that's this loyal to him.) The tense restaurant climax is terrific. (And note how the denouement resembles American Gangster.)
