A cool, methodical and lonely contract killer is driven into a corner by police after making an unusual mistake in his latest hit. Perhaps the most defining role of Alain Delon’s career, and considered by many to be director Jean-Pierre Melville’s Magnum Opus.
A cult-classic crime thriller, which bears a heavy homage to American cinema and Film Noir, as well as many of the defining characteristics of the French New Wave.
Highly influential. Unforgettable atmosphere, achieved through cunning direction, mise-en-scène and bold performances from all actors on screen.
Characteristic pacing and feel. Must See!
