Lino Ventura and Angie Dickinson crime-drama!
8 August 2004 | by (Eric Varca in New York) – See all my reviews

Jig-Saw, aka L'homme en colere is a Franco-Canadian co-production from 1979. It stars Lino Ventura as Romain Dupree, a Frenchman who arrives in Montreal only to be informed that his son is dead. However the deceased is not his son but an individual who was using his passport. Dupree begins a frantic search for his son who happens to be wanted by the local mob. Angie Dickinson plays Karen, an American woman who helps Dupree in his quest. While no means an action-packed Euro-crime film as one would expect, the film is pretty good in its storytelling and acting. Lino Ventura is terrific and plays the caring father with lots of emotion. Angie Dickinson is stunning as Karen. The film makes good use of Montreal's locations and it gives a good view of the Quebecois lifestyle. There are a few punch-ups and some brief shootings but this film is a basic drama story. Donald Pleasance turns up briefly in two scenes as a go-between for the mob. Even in such a small role, Pleasance is always exciting to watch on screen. An interesting film overall with a very moving score by Claude Bolling.
