Un Coeur en Hiver (1992)
Directed by Claude Sautet.
Starring Lino Ventura, Sandra Milo, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Marcel Dalio and Michel Ardan.
On the run with two small children, how long can criminal Abel Davos outrun those in pursuit and his destiny?
The same year cinema was left Breathless by Jean-Luc Godard's revolutionary tour de force, its star Jean-Paul Belmondo found himself yet again on the wrong side of the law in Claude Sautet's Classe Tous Risques; this time swapping the pursuit of Jean Seberg for Sandra Milo.
