Excellent neo film noir
27 September 2006 | by (finland) – See all my reviews

"Sans Sommation" is one of the movies classified as neo noir -movies which started to show up after the Hollywood golden age. 70's were the time when the dark movie landed to Europe and among Francois Truffaut and Jean-Pierre Melville - just to mention a couple - some other smaller directors made their versions of the moody atmospheric stories.

Bruno Gantillon's adaption is very faithful detective story where an old detective gets a new chance as he's been stuck between a bottle and bored wife for a long time. The writing is good and Gantillon successfully finds the old dark times mixed with some political lightning. The final conclusion is almost perfect, pure genre movie.
