Alain Delon hears out his acquitted client, Manuel Blanc
"Un Crime" is a filmed stage play, engaging and solid. It's in a laid back style. It's a mystery. Did Manuel Blanc, who has been acquitted of murder, actually do it? He invites his lawyer, Alain Delon, to the apartment where his parents died in order to tell his story, or several stories as it turns out. What is truth and what are lies coming from a troubled young man? This kind of movie reminds me of the duel between Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier in "Sleuth", but this is far more subdued and not as verbose or heavily acted. That goes down well. Delon is more expressive, using his eyes and facial movements more liberally than in some of his more youthful movies. Blanc is well cast for his part and he carries it off well, alternating his moods to convey his evident frustrations. There is some support from Sophie Brustal for a change of pace. The suspense is subtle and modest. No point in overdoing what is a modest tale of a crime. In the end, this is a satisfying film and neo-noir.
