Certainly the best movie from Alain corneau
20 May 2002 | by (toulouse FRANCE) – See all my reviews

Serie noire is an excellent french movie, especially because of the acting of Patrick Dewaere, unfortunately dead now. The atmosphere is noire and tough and it is impossible not to be touched by the sensibility of this personnage play by Patrick dewaere. This is one of my favourite films of the seventies.
