An Arsene Lupinesque movie,from Léo Malet,whose hero ,Nestor "Dynamite " Burma was portrayed by the late Michel Serrault in the eighties.
An entertaining thriller,with a dynamic lead ,René Dary ,the former Louis Feuillade's protégé ("Bout d'Zan" ).However Nestor Burma is not as suave ,as charming,as gallant and as nice as Arsene Lupin.He is a macho smug man .But the story is interesting: built around a conspiracy about an heritage ,full of riddles ("my dad wrote me I had to remember my childhood to discover the place').A mortal place ,for ,everytime you utter these words "120,Rue de LA Gare" you stand in great danger of being shot down.
