    BELMONDO takes up arms for the same role in the remake of "A NAMED LA ROCCA" by Jean Becker (1972). Film by José GIOVANNI, from his own novel, The Excommunicated. Claudia Cardinale, stunning ! === BELMONDO reprend les armes pour le même rôle dans ce remake de "UN NOMMÉ LA ROCCA" de Jean BECKER (1972). De José GIOVANNI, d'après son propre roman, l'Excommunié. Claudia CARDINALE magnifique.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film La scoumoune

    Amitié indéfectible, virilité des armes, fraternité dans la pègre. Rien de nouveau chez Giovanni qui mélange tant bien que mal les codes classiques du genre tout en restant extrêmement conventionnel dans la réalisation. La "scoumoune" serait plutôt pour le spectateur exigeant, une malchance cinématographique... www.cinefiches.com
