Melville’s swan song (he would die only a year later) completes his trilogy with Alain Delon who in this film is on the right side of the law for once trying to catch a team of robbers on a quest to outdo themselves with risqué thievery. A bleak but ultimately fitting end to a master filmmaker’s oeuvre who perfected his stylized visual language to the point of parody but never goes over the edge. This film is spoken in French with English subtitles.
