Trivia

The director Philippe Labro was a great friend of Jean-Pierre Melville, who died three years before the shooting. And the dialogues in this film "L'Alpagueur", where Bruno Cremer calls his co stars "Coco", is a sort of homage to Melville, who usually called his friends "Coco". See more »

A good thriller but the denouement is not explained
7 April 1999 | by piapiaSee all my reviews

A good thriller, with a very good cast and Belmondo at his best. Excellent photography, and everything you may wish, but a very important thing is missing: How did Belmondo identify the criminal? Nothing is explained. He just happens to find him, and we are not part of the secret. It is a pity, for the picture was doing well, and is very entertaining. But the rating of 8 went down to 6 in the two or three last minutes. The French are good at this type of thing, and Belmondo excels. But in this case they committed the unpardonable sin.
