I just watched this film on tv few hours ago...A typical French thriller, with typical dialogue setting around an interesting story...I watched this just because of Alain Delon's name, but it ended up being a nice thriller after all....Delon was probably at his best looking days...slightly overweighted than his usual thin view, but he had his part very nicely put....I always have a profound respect for French film makers for following their unique code of film making style, which is way out of typical Hollywood cliches....this is one of such films...you won't regret your time...
