Alain Delon turns in a stylish caper film here, one that could have come from René Clément's script drawer. I liked the intimate tone of the story, the way François Périer almost adopts Delon as his son, even giving him his mistress, Anne Parillaud. There is not much in the way of violence, which suits me fine.

The performances are generally good. Périer is oily and treacherous as Ruggeri, the club owner, Pierre Mondy has an easy time with the detective role, and Anne Parillaud is superb as the sexy assistant-turned-mistress. At two hours, though, the film is a bit long.
