Le Gang

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Old-fashioned, simple-minded stuff, with a bewigged Delon leading the notorious but effortlessly elusive 'front-wheel-drive gang' in a not too serious succession of hold-ups in postwar France. Deray periodically clobbers the audience with second-hand chunks of morality, but for the most part is content to move the action along with a minimum of violence and the occasional pastoral interlude evocative of a simpler age when crooks - however psychopathic - all had hearts of gold and faithful molls. The gendarmes, we are told, are busy purging their ranks of collaborators; it falls, therefore, to a jeweller's comely wife to despatch our hero (his demise coming as no surprise, since the movie is one long flashback).
