One of JEAN-PIERRE MELVILLE's lesser known movies and yet one of his most interesting as he explores the duality of characters in the fugitive gangster, Gu, played by Lino Ventura (see Part 2) and commissioner Paul Meurisse (see Part 2) who is chasing him.
An incredible movie filmed and black and white and rarely broadcasted on French TV. Check the movie trailer (here) as well as a great interview (in French here) where Melville, Ventura and Meurisse talk about the movie
Above is the very hard to find Japanese poster featuring Ventura in the trademark Melville characters’ costumes: trench coat, dark specs and hat.
