Cops and robbers
"L'Homme Aux Yeux D'argent " (the man with the silver eyes:why that title,by the way?) is the kind of movie the average viewer has seen at least twenty times or more.An ex-convict returns to his village where he has hidden his loot.A cop (Jean-Louis Trintignant) hot on his heels is as resolute as Javert in "Les Miserables" . The thief meets again his former love,a librarian ,who is not as innocent and naive as she appears first and is interested in the dough too.

The only offbeat thing in a routine thriller full of improbabilities is the presence of another cop ,played by a young Lambert Wilson.A shady character who has a very vicious way of treating innocent little girls who borrow "Heidi" or "Les Lettres De Mon Moulin" from the library.Wilson's scenes are the one moments when the movie seems to take off but they are few and far between and he is only supporting.
