Effective change-of-pace for Bronson
"Rider On The Rain" features one of Charles Bronson's best performances: he is enigmatic, very menacing, and quasi-villainous (sample line, to Marlene Jobert: "I think I could beat you" - "I've never played bowling before" - "I wasn't talking about bowling"). Most of the film is a slow yet tense cat-and-mouse game between him and the sexy, magnetic Jobert (who is both vulnerable and strong), but some of the tension is lost as the film eventually runs too long for its own good. **1/2 out of 4.
