"Fabio Montale" is a fairly faithful film version of the trilogy by Jean-Claude Izzo. I read all three books and they were excellent. This version is most accurate in its characterizations. Alain Delon is totally Fabio. He is a native of Marseille, the son of Italian immigrants. Delon brings to life Montale's charm and pathos. Montale is completely in love with Marseille, in spite of his recognition of her warts (racism, corruption and crime.) Every role is well-played. Even minor characters become dear or loathed, few are neutral and none are flat. There is also plenty of action. The cinematography is superb! I was amazed at how well produced it was. My French is basic, but I had no trouble following every nuance with the aid of subtitles. This is really a wonderful film set.
