Dire and misogynistic. Mifune is the best thing about it.
Apologies for my previous comments on Delon's character, which I have now removed in deference to someone more perceptive than myself. In response to a request to review the film, I say that I already have (see above). I've stripped out the chaff to make it clearer but have left my opinion of the film exactly as it was previously typed. Admittedly it's not a lengthy review by any standard but it is my opinion.
