A no nonsense French crime chronicle
17 February 2003 | by (Kaarina, Finland) – See all my reviews

A pleasant French crime film with the unimitable Michel Constantin.

What's good in Les Hommes is the way it portrays Fanto's (Constantin) struggle both against the police and fellow mobsters. Fanto represents the old world where gangsters are gentlemen and important members of their communities. In the beginning Fanto has his tightly knit "family" around him, but as the new money starts pouring in (in the form of an American mobster Everett, played by the charismatic Henry Silva), the whole scene changes and becomes less pictoresque for Fanto.

The story is told in a beautifully low key tone that gives the audience time to experience everything with Fanto, the good and the bad.

Highly recommended for fans of genre

Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
