A great classic

9 years, 9 months ago at Dec 30 15:03
Since this movie is considered a huge classic of the French cinema, I was definitely eager to check it out. Of course, at first, this flick might seem really old (it is actually pretty old indeed), there was still a very modern feeling about it which is something always inherent to the great classics.

(OK) Melville inspired by all amaerican he has seen, and in Paris at dawn, in casinos and crooks. Bob is a good hearted man, that has to do something as a 'father´for Paulo (he gives him Isabelle Corey) and as a crook...
View all Bob le Flambeur reviews
In Paris' Montmartre district, everyone knows Bob, a well-dressed compulsive gambler. He's generous, moralistic, drives a two-toned convertible coupe, lives in a swank apartment, and has the respect of the police. But he's on a losing streak, and even when he hits it big at the track, he loses at the Deauville casino. When he learns that the casino keeps a fortune on Grand Prix weekend, he plots a robbery. Subplots trace a seemingly innocent coquette's social climb and the greed of a croupier's wife who betrays the thieves.

"27.9 Perin tyylikkäässä Melvillen muotoutumisvaiheen rikostelussa oli viileitä ottoja ja kaikinpuolin leppoisa tunnelma. En vaan jotenkin jaksanut. Ei aina voi jaksaa."
