A gem
24 June 2004 | by (Fresnes, France) – See all my reviews

I think this is the best film Jean-Claude Roy ever made. It reminds fondly the Lautner-Audiard films of the late 60s-early 70s, with the same team of legendary actors : André Pousse, Georges Géret, Dalban, Philippe Clay... It's such a pleasure to see them together ! That film shouldn't be so underrated - in fact, I think it's simply completely unknown, and that's a real shame, because due to its cynicism, its cast, its humor and its music (Bernard Gérard stands here at the heaven of European funk-masters alongside with Piero Umiliani), it stands the comparison with Lautner's works, although it looks - and actually WAS - really cheaper. If you can, prefer the French version, for its clever dubbing of Henry Silva's voice (made by an American actor whose name I can't remember living at the time in Paris), because in English you don't have any equivalent to the inimitable voice of André Pousse.
