Stone cold. All of Melville's later films boasted an icy detachment, but here it's almost staggering. The entire color palette is blue, and the dialog is even more sparse than in Le Samourai. The film's plot relies on the circumstantial, and both the police and criminals think they're always one step ahead of each other. A nice, but all too early farewell from a stand-out director.

While it's a slight pity about the model train and helicopter, this is a much better than average, if downbeat, version of the interchangeability of cop and criminal theme. Here, the story, action and characters seem almost a pretext for staging a presentation of their mutual dependence understood as rooted in repressed homosexuality and the elaborate formations that are concocted to prevent it from rising to the surface. All the blues removed from THE GODFATHER resurface here six months later.

Not as well done as other Melvilles I've yet seen. The toy train and helicopter are too obvious, as are a few backdrops. The cool factor is still there, but it suffers when you're drawn out by the cheap effects.

Feels like Melville just going through the motions.

Melville's shallow imitation of Melville. Really lacks the depth of his other work. You don't get to know nearly enough of the characters to care for anything playing out, but the movie constantly insists that you should. Anyways, the trademark Melville noir style is intact and still potent enough to carry you through the movie. The acting is really decent, especially Delon does well with the little he has to work with.
