New York gangs speaking French ?
3 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Marc (Alain Delon) is a womanizer. He womanizes a New york gang's wife, and royally gets them angry. He flees to France, but the gangs are after him. They catch up to him, but in their encounter, they're speaking French. I can understand them speaking Italian, but New York gangs speaking French ? Jane Fonda's voice is also dubbed over.

That's the only part I'd like to nit pick about this movie. The rest is superb. Alain Delon, and Jane Fonda are absolutely beautiful.

This kind of gorgeous looking actors don't exist anymore. The movie is classy in the way its made. It doesn't have any high tech in it, but has gorgeous lifestyle in its place. I really think we made the wrong choice in our lifestyle. We need to bring back more of the gorgeous lifestyle like people in the '60s had.

Don't miss this movie, because it's just great.
