| Violent and absurd thriller.
Yves Boisset has always been a director with a political obsession.IN the seventies,he hit his stride with such work as "RAS" ,"Dupont-Lajoie- (which will probably remains his best work- and even "le juge Fayard dit le shériff".Afterward,his filmography became more disparate ,but his ambitions surfaced again in "allons enfants" (1981) and in his excellent made-for-TV "le pantalon "(1997).

"Le saut de l'ange" ,on the other hand ,has almost nothing to recommend it;for the time is was an extremely violent movie, which actually recalls more Boisset's first effort ,"Coplan sauve sa peau" (1967) than his "serious" political films.A far-fetched script,which includes a lot of sadism(a man with his two legs broken given over to a cobra,ouch!), and all kinds of crimes and brutality under a caricature of a police 's faraway eye.No need to say that the political background is quickly forgotten,as the audience follows Yanne's ruthless revenge.

The cast is absurd :the late Yanne, a decorative Senta Berger ,and Sterling Hayden who is completely wasted -he's supposed to be an alcoholic,but we never see him drink anything,not even Perrier -.
