Half interesting half "confused" 70's Euro rape/kill/revenge film.
Shown on the Italian tv-channel Rai Uno the other day and with
actor names as J L Trintignant and C Deneuve featured in a Euro "giallo" from the seventies I naturally hooked up my vcr for taping. Dubbed in Italian language I ofcourse didn't understand a single spoken word, but several scenes are experimentally(!!) actionpacked and although it dosn't come near (or tries to be) a sleaze-movie, one cannot help comparing it to films like Night Train Murders( Aldo Lado), Spoorloos(Dutch film)and Mario Bava's Rabid Dogs in terms of associations, at least. Anyways...J L Trintignant's wife and daughter are raped/killed at the very beginning by a gang of viscious bikers. Then follows a lot of talky talk always accompanied by agressive behaviour by the charactors of the movie. I'm not quite sure where and why Miss Deneuve fits in, but she does a fine job looking sexy and mature and we even get a slight glimpse of her breasts. Guess that means this is an art-movie !!?? Trintignant gets his revenge at the end and a "drive-by" shooting of one of the bikers is indeed very well executed. A bikergirl is terrorrised by a guy(who befriends Trintignant + Deneuve),who turns out to be really creepy. His "hobby" is really perverse and adds the sleaze-associations to the film. As for the music, aahhh....??? Lemme know what You think, ok?? Overall I totally recommend it to fans of Euro films....You won't be disappointed I'm sure, but try catching an English languaged version, as I'm pretty sure I missed out on a whole lot of interesting talk....yep.
