rather wistful James Hadley Chase adaptation
22 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Likable if rather wistful James Hadley Chase adaptation. The first half particularly is light and verging on the comedic, albeit with stunning b/w photography and ultra cool soundtrack.

Things get a bit more serious as things get a bit more serious, but considering the subject is blackmail and murder, this is a mostly mannered interpretation. Jean-Paul Belmondo, great as ever and so relaxed, throughout.

Sexy Sophia Daumier is very effective as his very close sister and Geraldine Chaplin, in her first role, does well as the captive. Not as rough and tough as it might have been and plenty of decent dialogue instead, well this is a French film after all.
