Storyline

On the day Jean Gabin dies, a kidnaper who also takes a fortune in jewels heisted from Cartiers murders Simon Verini's wife. (Simon was fencing the jewels for a youthful gang who robbed Cartiers; he suspects them of the murder.) He's framed for the theft and spends ten years in prison, writing to his daughter, Marie-Sophie, who's 11 when he's sent away. Released, he reconnects to Marie-Sophie and to the young thieves, seeks revenge, and is quickly arrested again. She doesn't know what to make of her father, retreats to her Swiss fiancé, and is flummoxed when one of the young thieves falls for her. Is resolution possible when crime cuts across families and romance? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The typical Claude Lelouch's stuff

That will probably be the only film directed by Claude Lelouch that I will comment. I don't hate this film maker, he has a way of give us portraits of characters which are unparalleled. Concerning this one, I would say that the first part is outstanding, poignant, with a top performance by Jean Yanne at his peak. The hoodlum seeking revenger against the men who killed his wife. The same gangster who is in jail and who writes to his daughter. Gripping sequences and a music score by Francis Lai which reminds me the one I heard in L'ARMEE DES OMBRES. Speaking of that, lots of things in this first part remind me Jean-Pierre Melville's atmosphere. Lots of things. But unfortunately the second half is a total mess. I won't say much more offensive about it, but I prefer forget the whole thing.

Such a shame for such a waste.

But I was very happy to hear in the film theme the only song from the great Jean Gabin.
