Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville (France, 1972, 98 min.). French with English subtitles. Digital.
Edouard Coleman (Alain Delon) spends his days and nights chasing criminals, but doesn’t see the crook right under his nose. Simon (Richard Crenna), a smooth nightclub owner, works with a small crew to execute daring heists with big payoffs, while the beautiful Cathy (Catherine Deneuve) is torn between them. As cop and criminal do what they do best, paths converge and old scores must be settled. Melville’s thirteenth and final film doubles down on the director’s signature ice-blue look.
“Delon and Crenna paint an idealized portrait of masculine camaraderie, one that’s exposed at the end of Melville’s bracing last testament as a soul-shattering illusion.” – Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
