May 68 blues
15 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

It's easy to understand why this political thriller gets such a poor rating ;Romain Goupil (born 1951) was traumatized ,like many people of this generation,by the events of May 68 and the aftermath .But ,unlike,say,Yves Boisset,he does not know how to be accessible and how to make his movies palatable for a popular audience ..The title is adequate because it is really the waltz ("java" ) of the shadows .

Xavier is released after a seven-year sentence ;he wants to avenge one of his friends,killed by Valmont ,a killer from a far right organization;he falls into the hand of "Mister Jean" (played by Jean-Pierre Aumont ,one of the romantic male leads of the thirties!)who wants to use him to find the brains behind the organization.
