Classe Tous Risque (The Big Risk) (1959)

1 post in this topic

This is a REALLY good film.  Now considered a masterpiece it influenced the work of French directors Melville and others. The film stars Lino Ventura as French gangster Abel Davos. He has been convicted of a crime and is on the run.  With the help of a driver hired by his former gang, Eric Stark ( Jean -Paul Belmondo) he sneaks out of France but not without trouble. The film is directed by Claude Sautet.  The DVD copy I have from Criterion is just perfect.  The cinematography is gorgeous and you get plenty of on location filming of Nice, Milano and Paris and points in between.  That along makes this a must have for cinemaphiles.  I rank this one a 10 out of 10...
