Film, Thrillers
Competent but stereotypical performances from the two stars as small-time hoodlums working their way up in the Marseilles underworld of the '30s. Fairly basic as a gangster pastiche, despite its nods to Hawks, Melville, et al; but not unenjoyable thanks to its loudly stressed period detail and Claude Bolling's jolly score for mechanical piano.
