excellent movie uniting 2 of the biggest french male stars
16 June 2003 | by frenchynlaSee all my reviews

in a 1920-30 era Marseille, 2 crooks fighting over the same woman will become partners to take control of the city's organized crime. Excellent acting from both Jean-Paul Belmondo and Alain Delon who ever since, stayed on top of the charts. Great soundtrack too!
