COLCOA is pleased to present this digitally restored thriller, the final pairing of Alain Delon and Jean Gabin. Four years earlier the old-school sensei and the new wave upstart shared the screen in the hugely successful The Sicilian Clan, and audiences wanted more. Here, Delon plays a reformed safecracker determined to walk the straight and narrow even as the machinery of state and the cruelties of fate conspire against him. Gabin plays Germain, a world-weary social worker fighting to give Gino a fair shake and a second chance in life. Things look promising as Gino lands a job and rekindles an old romance, until the vindictive Inspector Goitreau returns – with nods to Les Miserables’ Inspector Javert – intent on inflaming Gino’s pent up rage. In an early role, a young Gérard Depardieu plays a swaggering tough guy from Gino’s criminal days.
