Le Samourai

The movies are filled with beautiful killers and brooding, haunted men struggling with their past and present. But Alain Delon in Le Samourai puts practically all of them to shame. His performance is a master class in underplaying everything; he barely registers an emotion, keeping his cool poker face throughout the various twists and turns of the film.

His character, Jef Costello,... read more

Hitman Jeff Costello is a perfectionist who always carefully plans his murders and who never gets caught. One night however, after killing a night-club owner, he's seen by witnesses. His efforts to provide himself with an alibi fail and more and more he gets driven into a corner.

"27.9. DVD Uusintakatselu. Jokunen cool tai "cool" rikoselokuva on tullut nähtyä, mutta harvassa ovat ne, jotka näin vaivattomasti pääsevät kokonaisvaltaisen cooliuden ytimeen. Hiljainen, minimalistinenkin, mestariteos ei tahdo päästää irti katselun jälkeenkään. Kameratyö ja vähäinen musiikki ovat kumpikin aivan saatanan mahtavaa. Yksinäisen palkkamurhaajan työ on yksinäistä, eikä tuolla ammatinvalinnalla loppukaan kauhean valoisa ole. Alain Delon kertoo eleettömyydellää"

"Jean-Pierre Melville’s films celebrate code of conduct as a self-justifying reward—a notion that enjoys less currency in our self-absorbed present day. And so Le Samouraï is driven by the subterranean merger between Jef Costello (Alain Delon) and Melville’s working credos. Jef derives satisfaction from his sense of style, which fuses dandy poetry with a working man’s enjoyment of the quotidian. As played, or more accurately inhabited, by one of the most beautiful men in cinema, Jef wear"

"24.9, PC Erittäin smoothi rikosfilmi. Musiikit on hyviä ja niitä käytellään säästeliäästi, kameratyöskentely näppärää ja kylmä värimaailma myös miellyttää silmääni kovasti. Kaiken kaikkiaan tästä huokuu maltillisuus. Toisin on etenkin nykypäivän rikosjännäreissä, joihin on pakko tunkea kaikkea mahdollista mähinää ja kiirettä katsojakunnan mielenkiinnon ylläpitämiseksi."

"First viewing - March 11th I can see the various ways Le Samourai influenced the films that followed it, and I thought it was pretty solid all around. I didn't fall in love with it, but it's an interesting movie and I'm glad I finally watched it."
