User Reviews

A very entertaining french thriller

I waited for this film since many years, now. And at last I got it. I read the novel when I was a kid and since...Directed by the very efficient Jacques Deray, it is a very hard to catch film. Deray made RIFIFI IN TOKYO, starring Charles Vanel too, and this last one is more easy to watch.

Concerning SYMPHONY...it's the story of gangsters, smuggling drug dealers who try to cheat, steal each other. Actually only one among them is a kind of traitor, who tries to keep a suit case full of money. So he has to kill his accomplices. But everything doesn't go as he plans.

Very paced triller, with also an unexpected ending.

Jean Rochefort is here a powerful villain character, as we saw not so often with him.
