2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 14 May 2013
Format: Blu-ray
Although usually overlooked among the great actor-director partnerships, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Henri Verneuil wracked up an impressive array of populist French films among the eight they made over a 24 year period - two in 1964 alone with the spectacular Week-end a Zuydcoote and adventure film Cent Mille Dollars au Soleil aka Greed in the Sun, a well crafted desert variation on Wages of Fear. While lacking Clouzot's film's nihilism, it follows the template fairly closely, with a similar line-up of losers who find themselves working for Gert Frobe's trucking line in North Africa - some for the money, most because they have nowhere else to go. Belmondo's the cocky one who steals Frobe's new truck to sell its mysterious cargo and finds himself pursued across treacherous desert roads by old friend Lino Ventura, who lost his own trucking firm in a local revolution, and new driver with false papers and a dark secret Reginald Kernan, occasionally aided by a dryly wisecracking Bernard Blier ("Just say one word and it's like starting a jukebox. He never stops."). There are plenty of obstacles along the way, from the obligatory treacherous mountain roads, quicksand, bar-room brawls and betrayals, not to mention the just as obligatory personal revelations ("This isn't a truck, it's a confessional") before a payoff you can see coming miles off.

It's formulaic stuff, but delivered with enough class, panache and epic scale for it to be no great surprise that French filmmakers have been occasionally imitating it for years. It could certainly do with a stronger ending, but it's still an entertaining bit of crowdpleasing formula filmmaking that still has a lot of traction left five decades on even if it's in no danger of knocking Wages of Fear off its position among the all-time classics.

The whole movie is great to watch. Some spins and turns and twists in the scenario. However I was a bit disappointed by the way the story ends [no spoilers here]. It is almost as if a sequel is needed.

Beautiful 35mm anamorphic (2 20 Sept. 2014
By V. O. Valdes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Beautiful 35mm anamorphic (2.35:1) transfer to DVD (16:9). English subtitles. The transfer to Blu-ray of "Greed In The Sun" has its original organic look with no digital help, meaning that there is a good layer of grain, giving it the old fashioned look. "It's a winner!" DVD Savant. "it's a brisk and very entertaining film that is a joy to see on Blu-ray." Blu-ray.com
