A classic French thriller of the 60's
on 16 June 2017
A very effective crime drama / thriller with Lino Ventura playing a self-interested and utterly amoral murdering gangster. He outwits his former associates who try to kill him. Jean-Paul Belmondo plays a loner who forms a friendly association with Ventura, but he may not be all that he seems
It's effectively a French version of an American film noir, but with a harder edge.
It's also great to see these two influential French actors together in the same film and that in itself is good enough reason for seeing it. .
