Dedicated to René Clement..., 16 July 2004
Author: dbdumonteil

...who directed Delon in one of his most memorable parts "Plein soleil" (1959)-the first version of "the talented MrRipley";also worthwhile was "les felins" (1964).

"Le battant " has nothing to do with René Clement though.It would rather recall Henri Verneuil.The story is run of the mill diamonds chase ,diamonds which Delon hid somewhere (we will know where in the last pictures)just before he was arrested .When he's released ,a lot of people are hot on his heels ,cops and robbers as well.Mildly entertaining,because it does not lack tempo,the movie accumulates the dead bodies and a certain misogyny.

Delon's sophomore effort as a director.His movie seems to belong to the precedent decade.He's only offering us diamonds and rust here,and we've already paid.
