A good movie

Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, 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). Still, I have to a... read more

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, 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). Still, I have to admit that I did struggle with the story through. I mean, sure, it was entertaining but there were some stuff that kept bothering me. For example, why would Mattei go with Vogel by train all by himself? It didn't make much sense. Then, there was this combination of two completely different stories, the escape and the heist, which felt rather jarring to me. Finally, there was the fact that, even tho” read more

"Melvilleltä olin harmikseni nähnyt aikaisemmin vain un flicin, joka ei jostain syystä natsannut. Mutta tämä -vieläpä valkokankaalta- huh huh... Ei pelkästään puhdasta cinemaa vaan myös puhdasta coolia, joka ikinen kuvakulma ja kulmakarvannosto ovat niin viileitä, niin hillityn tyylikkäitä. Cercle rouge on genre-elokuvaa tislattuna puhtaimpaan muotoonsa, se on huippuunsa viritetty kone, mutta se on myös rönsyilevä runsaudensarvi, pienten yksityiskohtien ja viittausten viidakko: "
