How to start a brand new life..
25 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

If you think,like the precedent user, that François Truffaut was a "neo film noir" director,then my dog can speak German.

"Sans Sommation" by Bruno Gantillon 's main asset is its cast which pairs Maurice Ronet and Mario Adorf.Plus attractive Anny Duperrey.

Ronet plays the part of an impostor they use to get rid of a former officer "who knows too many things about VIP ",in the political field. One must admit the firebrand is rather naive ,for not realizing that he is lead up the garden path .

Maurice Ronet has a rather interesting role.Playing the part of an impostor ,he finally decides to be this man in the end.
