Director Jean-Pierre Melville brings his trademark attention to detail to bear in 1966's LE DEUXIEME SOUFFLE (SECOND BREATH), a stylish, carefully measured crime classic. The shadowy, ruminating feature follows Gu (Lino Ventura), a criminal mastermind and recently escaped convict, as he attempts to pull off a final heist while eluding Blot (Paul Meurisse), the dogged inspector tracking his every move.
Description by Image Entertainment:
With his customary restraint and ruthless attention to detail, director Jean-Pierre Melville follows the parallel tracks of French underworld criminal Gu (the inimitable Lino Ventura), escaped from prison and roped into one last robbery, and the suave inspector, Blot (Paul Meurisse), relentlessly seeking him. The implosive Le deuxieme souffle captures the pathos, loneliness, and excitement of a life in the shadows with methodical suspense and harrowing authenticity, and contains one of the most thrilling heist sequences Melville ever shot.
