Moorman

Le deuxième souffle (1966)

Recommended Posts

This is just another PERFECT film from Jean Pierre Melville.  Gustave "Gu" Minda ( Lino Ventura) escapes from prison with two others. He is highly respected in the criminal world for both his ability and loyalty.  He heads to Paris to visit his sister Manouche ( Christine Fabrega) who herself grew up as a criminal with Gu.  The plan is to for her to use her connections to get Gu out of Paris.  Gu needs money before he leaves and is tipped off about a big heist by a old friend named Orloff ( Pierre Zimmer).  From there the plot takes amazing twists and turns until the dramatic final scenes.

There is not a dull moment anywhere in this fantastic film.  The great cinematography was done by Marcel Combes.  The equally great musical score is by Bernard Gerard.  The direction by Jean Pierre Melville as he always does is just perfect.  I can't say enough about how great this director is. Just fantastic!  You already know... 10 out of 10...
