Cool French Italian co-production
3 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an icy Euro crime outing with a great cast. It's a shame Le Mataf is only available on French DVD with no English subs as 70's French crime movies are very under represented (unlike their Italian cousins). This may not have the balls out action and macho posturing of a Merli or Milian outing but Michel Constantin's crater face speaks volumes and there's an excellent safe cracking scene featuring plenty of sweat and wild camera compositions. Melville typified the sullen loner alongside hushed, whispered dialogue. The performances here mirror the maestros tone alongside the twisting narrative and laid back pacing. Stelvio Cipriani's lush score is another plus. Check it out.
