| Belmondo takes the lion's share.
Jacques Deray,who recently died, made several commendable works ,even if he never made a masterpiece:"la piscine" "un papillon sur l'épaule" or in his latter days "un crime".

But "le solitaire" has nothing going for it:here Deray is Belmondo's drudge,trying to direct a star who overplays and who single-handedly gets rid of the villains and even the treacherous cops.They added a child's character (Belmondo's godson whom he takes in after his father's death )to sweeten the violence ;the brat is subject to some gaffes concerning Godfather's love affairs.This is supposed to provide the poor screenplay with a comic relief.

The film wasn't even a commercial success in France which had begun to have enough of these cops and robbers flicks
