The chase in the subway (Express train) starts at the station Auber, in front of the Galeries Lafayette store. Minos and Letellier are in a train that leaved Auber Station and get off at the next station (that should be Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile), but we see commissioner Letellier in the Auber Station corridor. At the same moment, Minos (who should be in the same station that Letellier) is on the subway platform of Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile Station. See more »
This French movie by crime and action movie director Henri Verneuil presents Jean-Paul Belmondo at his best! He plays a Clint-Eastwood-like hard boiled detective in Paris, chasing a mentally disturbed serial killer who's already killed several women. Belmondo is acting in his usual style, with less words than action and some witty remarks for every scene. Next to some scary murders and a disturbing one-eyed killer, the highlight of this movie is a 15-minute chase which starts on a house's roof and is continued by bike, cars and a thrilling subway stunt sequence, all filmed as good as well-known chase scenes like "Bullitt", "French Connection" or "Speed". If you like dark serial killer action, hard-boiled guys and breath-taking action sequences, watch this cool 1975 movie!
