Storyline

It's the early 1930s. Working their way up the ladder largely on chutzpah, Roch Sifreddi and François Capella, who became best friends in their unlikely partnership, have risen to the top of the organized crime world in Marseilles. Shortly after reaching the top, Capella is murdered. Sifreddi eventually learns that the murder was orchestrated by international businessman Giovanni Volpone, new to Marseilles from Italy, he whose ultimate goal is to take control of the city in all aspects, legal and illegal. While Sifreddi sees Volpone's action as the start of a gangland war, Volpone has other thoughts in sending a longer lasting message to Sifreddi and others who may want to fill his shoes. Volpone has specific reasons for wanting Marseilles, it a war he will want to wage in most of the western world to reach his end goal. Standing by Sifreddi in this war is Lola, a former prostitute friend to both Sifreddi and Capella, she who was Capella's girlfriend at the time of his death, and ... Written by Huggo

Borsalino & Co.
22 January 2016 | by mike-hoggSee all my reviews

I have been a fan of Alain Delon for many years, since first seeing his stunning performance as Tom Ripley in Rene Clement's superb Plein Soleil. He's one of the great icons of French cinema.

Borsalino was a film that I remembered very fondly; although I hadn't seen it since its first release it has always remained vividly in my memory, and when I saw that Kino had released it on disc I ordered it on line. What I received was this sequel, which I wasn't even aware had been made, however I watched it and was hugely disappointed. If like me you remember the original fondly, then avoid the sequel.

According to the distributors the original Borsalino is not available. Ever the optimist, I'll continue to try to track down a copy.
