With exciting car chase and violence (which I think unnecessary, like when Gerfaut shoots the blond man and the last scene), no wonder that this movie attracted many viewers when it was released. I read that the successful of this is equal to Borsalino and Le cercle rouge. The dialogues are often filled with humour. "Have you noticed? My breasts are smaller in the morning," says Béa.
I like the scene in Gerfaut's apartment when the concierge comes to tell him that 2 men were looking for him last Friday. She carries a letter in her hand, but it is not for Gerfaut, but for someone who lives on the upper floor. It's quite funny and I've never seen this in any other movie before. In a movie, when someone knocks on your door bringing a mail, usually it's for you. We often forget that there is other people in the apartment building and the concierge doesn't serve the main character in the scene alone.
The music by Claude Bolling is beautiful. I did not expect something like that in an action movie.
