Limp,lethargic,listless...
This would be violent thriller is thoroughly devoid of interest.Jean Gabin's career reached its nadir in the sixties and the seventies .At the time,Carné,Renoir,Grémillon,Ophuls,Duvivier and Autant-Lara were either dead or artistically dead and Gabin never worked (perhaps wisely)with the Nouvelle Vague.He could have tried Chabrol though.

This is the story of a killer (Fabio Testi's playing is appalling)and Gabin is hot on his heels .The movie is as obsolete as the computer(!) the Police use or Bernard Blier's recriminations about Gabin's assistant's long hair.Denys De la Patellière,a director who had NEVER produced a decent movie in a rather long career,with the exception of "retour de Manivelle" ,reached here one of his lowest points.

Gabin's career was almost over but another one was about to take off:Gerard Depardieu has a small part in the third half .His playing is not particularly remarkable.
