Robin Davis did not try to capitalize on the huge success of his precedent work " J'ai Epousé Une Ombre" which was not faithful to writer William Irish's noir spirit.
"Hors -la -loi" was not adapted from a novel and showed more originality.Most of his actors were then unknown (Clovis Cornillac was Asterix in the latest episode)and it lends the story some credibility.Some kind of French "badlands" ,relatively speaking,but they are fifteen instead of two.The subject is not unlike the oldies of the French thirties when the heroes wanted to sail away to the islands in the sun,the mythic village replacing those faraway lands.
But for a French cine buff, the main interest lies in the presence of Madeleine Robinson (as the "ranch woman" ) ,one of the veterans of the silver screen.
