Mulot strikes again in a "film noir" rip-off
Pornographer Claude Mulot once tried film making and liked it. So he didn't stop porn completely, but he shot a few "non-porno" movies during the 70's and 80's.
This one is about a french guy who left his native village for obscure family reasons. He's been living in New York since then with a girl he doesn't love, and has survived being a table boy in a restaurant. When he witnesses a mob chief killing a bunch of people, he decides to run away and go back to his France. The mob chief sends a killer out to seek him.
Now behind that common script lies a very unique directing, a few surprising scenes and an unusual atmosphere. Gabriele Tinti, as the killer, is very touching, and the story is overall gripping. There are a few times when Mulot's style gets in the way of the continuity, but this is a 70's gem I would not be shy to recommend to the genre's lovers.
