98 min, France, 1972.
In French with English subtitles.
Edouard Coleman (Alain Delon: Le Cercle Rouge, Le Samouraï, Purple Noon) is a cop ("un flic") who spends his days and nights chasing criminals, but doesn’t see the crook right under his nose. Simon (Richard Crenna: The Sand Pebbles, Wait Until Dark, first 3 Rambo films), a smooth nightclub owner, works with a small crew to execute daring heists with big payoffs, while the beautiful Cathy (Catherine Deneuve: Repulsion, Belle de jour, Indochine) is torn between them. As cop and criminal do what they do best, paths converge and old scores must be settled. Written and directed by Gallic great Jean-Pierre Melville (Bob Le Flambeur, Army of Shadows), his thirteenth and final film from 1972 doubles-down the ice-blue look that had been the director’s signature in Le Samourai and Le Cercle Rouge, both starring the equally cool Delon. Michael Conrad ("Hill Street Blues") co-stars.
