Excellent French crime thriller
6 April 2019 | by pete36See all my reviews

A ruthless gangster (Trintignant) is on the loose and he seems to be killing for fun. But inspector Borniche (Delon) is on his tail. Set in immediate postwar France (1947) this is based on a true story (from Borniche himself). Everything about this movie is spot-on : the direction, the actors, the impeccable recreation of France in the forties, etc... : Delon is perfect as the laconic inspector and Trintignant as the coldblooded gangster (his favourite handgun is the Walther P38, a Germanmade pistol, as repeated frequently in the movie). You will be at the edge of your seat : they don't make 'em like that anymore !
