30 hand picked films. A new one every day
A former bank robber is released after 10 years in prison. He gets help from a social-worker, but gets harassed by an old cop from his past.
This film skirts over the line from mediocre to good by the performance of Delon alone. As a few others have mentioned the story is very close to a modernized Les Miserables.
Du prêchi-prêcha cinématographique sans aucune envergure ni ouverture se limitant à filmer correctement les allées et venues des (faux) monstres sacrés de l'époque, le pachydermique Jean Gabin et le paon Alain Delon... www.cinefiches.com
Remarkable preformances by Jean Gabin and Alain Delon. Quite bleak.
