Another little lost gem

Another perfect example of what the french film industry may offer from time to time. And you can't miss it when it is released in theatres. And if you're Lucky, maybe you can catch it in DVD set boxes. On if it is aired. IF...

This is also the typical scheme of this same french industry gave us in the eighties, so did the french noir novels, social crime flicks, far from the stories that we find today with serial killers, serials killers, serial killers and some times serial killers or serial killers.

I am sick of serial killers every where you go. I prefer gangsters stories or political crime tales.

For this film, the tale of a petty Hood who wants to escape from justice, whilst being in love with a Young woman, and the relation ship between him and another very interesting character played here by the terrific Nicolas Silberg. What an actor, unfortunately more interested in stage or TV industry than in big screen stuff. Remember him as Mesrine. Twenty five years before Vincent Cassel.

Yes, this little crime movie is Worth and this is such a shame that it is not more known. I would say totally forgotten.

Except by me.
