Tough times faced by French actors Lino Ventura and Marlène Jobert in a dramatic thriller directed by José Giovanni.
It was in 1970 that French director/screen writer José Giovanni directed one of his famous films "Dernier Domicile Connu"/Last known address. As the film remained very much true to life, it has still not lost any of its beauty or shine. It is also very much relevant to contemporary times wherein heroes, heroines and their honors, ideas and opinions are brushed aside for certain individuals. In the film, 'Last known address' there is some great work done by actors. Lino Ventura is the one who would not stop at anything to reclaim his lost honor. He has always viewed his honesty as a force. Marlène Jobert's character undergoes major changes especially with regards to her involvement with Lino Ventura. In the beginning, she is shown as a mere colleague but ends up being a companion of life. In many ways, 'Last Known Address' questions whether the price paid by an honest police officer allows anybody to question police forces and their methods in dealing with criminals. Lastly, despite turning itself into a suspense thriller towards the end, this José Giovanni film manages to remain more of a 'drama film'.
