Comments

Very good but no masterpiece Basically, this is a French example of an American gangster film.It's a very good movie--good acting, directing but the plot was pretty obvious and has been done before.Still I can't understand why this is regarded a masterpiece by many people.I'm giving it a 9, but I've seen better gangster films.Maybe, for it's time, it was groundbreaking.Not anymore. So, it's well worth seeing but don't expect a classic.
