I just saw this film yesterday as part of a local French Film Festival and I must say that it is Cinema at it's finest. In an era when heist film means either ridiculus buddy pic or action packed shoot em up chase film this is a breath of fresh air. If you are a fan of film's like 'hana bi' by Beat Takeshi you must see this film just to see where Beat copped is style of elegant violence from... or if you are a fan of Tarantino or John Woo you must see this because the both count Melville as one of their biggest influences for his ethos of Honour Amongst Thieves. If you are a fan of Noir You MUST SEE THIS just for the fact that Melville is one of the genre's best. Lastly if you are a fan of cinema you must see this so as to witness what film is actually capable of. In Short... Buy This Now if you have any l'adore pour film, le cinemateque et la vie.
