A film to relax enjoy and have great fun
24 October 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I have seen this great movie at least 3 times and enjoyed it even more the third time. Of course I saw it in French and for sure it is nothing like a translation. You can feel it throughout the movie how much fun Delon and Belmondo have in playing together, they are enjoying themselves, they have a day of it. What more can you say of the greatest stars of the French cinema for the last 50 years, I have seen almost all of their separate and joint movies, like "Borsalino": but in Borsalino you did not have the same feeling of complicity, which transpires here. All "the most this" and "most that" are pale in comparison to the pleasure you have at seeing them doing what they do best : throwing grenades and pulling the casino down...Vanessa Paradis is new to me, and gave a good show. Some of her scenes with the two lead men are quite moving. I have come to enjoy Eric Defosse, whom we saw as Carella in the "Frank Riva" series. I like him he will go far. This a film to enjoy and laugh..
