Justice is unfair...
17 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

...to the Rich.That might be the obnoxious moral of this Jose Giovanni film.The director was more inspired when he directed Delon in "Deux Hommes Dans la Ville" ,which was a strong plea against death penalty or even later in "Mon Père ..Il M'a sauvé La Vie" A former gangster (Delon) is on the right track again.He has become a wealthy man.Unfortunately,his beloved son kills a cop .And the judge has no pity on the poor rich kid.The father will sacrifice everything he 's got to save him.Even Suzanne Flon,cast as the policeman's widow cannot, save the flick.Besides ,slow motions which were trendy in the FRench cinema of the seventies are almost unbearable.

Get "Deux Hommes Dans la Ville" instead.
