Noiret shines again
21 March 2001 | by alexander.stroeckSee all my reviews

This is for you, If you like the elegant french-style assassin. The very fine Philippe Noiret shows us again a great performance spiced with his typical humour. The film shows interesting aspects of the relations between an old policeman (Marielle) and Noiret as the more or less souvereign retired killer. If you look only for the usual Lambert-Action movie then you are served better with his other movies. This one is - well- calm and slower paced. Lambert is good here as the foolish young man. The character development very believable although they keep a surprise until the end. I liked it (7/10).
