Corny Propaganda against Death Penalty
"Deux hommes dans la ville", a.k.a. "Two Men in Town", is a corny propaganda against death penalty in France based on an updated version of Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. Produced by Alain Delon and with the great Jean Gabin and Alain Delon in the lead roles, the film wants to show injustices in the French justice system, but it is absolutely manipulative. Alain Delon performs the likable Gino Strabliggi, a modern version of Jean Valjean, and Michel Bouquet performs the nasty Chief Inspector Goitreau, a modern version of Inspector Javert. The result is a good film with questionable intentions. The beauty of Mimsy Farmer is another attraction of this film. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Dois Homens Contra uma Cidade" ("Two Men against a City")
