I already saw this movie not so long ago but I thought I might as well check it out again. The first time around, since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I had some rather high expectations.

Bourvil used in a counter-intuitive role. This role of ruthless cop who never smiles suits him like "a cigar in a pipe..." Bourvil was an actor, yes, but only humorous. Only the film "La traversée de Paris" with Jean Gabin, as an art painter and Louis de Funès as a black market profiteer can suit such an actor. I didn't like it at all! And it's the only film with Bourvil that I don't like.

Imagine Benny Hill in the role of Quasimodo in "Notre Dame de Paris"... For me, it's the same thing. Bourvil was absolutely not a dramatic actor.

Melville "put his finger in his eye up to his shoulder blade..."” read more

" Notes: Eventually, it turned out to be a fairly realistic but also really stylish crime thriller. Indeed, what I enjoyed the most was the expert directing of Jean-Pierre Melville who managed to deliver such a spellbinding mood without even using some music (except during the heist scene).
