"...Enough richness of style and theme to make UN FLIC a characteristic if not the quintessential Melville film..."

"A Spartan, stylish thriller immaculately presented in bleak blue hues, it's HEAT's understated, European ancestor. Icy but very compelling."
Simon (Delon) is a Paris nightclub owner and the leader of a gang of bank robbers. When he and his buddies knock over a small town bank, one of his accomplices is wounded. It isn't long before the local police comissaire, Edourd, takes an interest in the case, and who, unfortunately, is one of Simon's close friends. As Simon and his crew prepare for a much larger heist using the stolen money, Edourd begins to put the pieces of the puzzle together, creating a difficult situation for both friends. A deft and stylish thriller from director Melville (LE SAMOURAI), whose influence is still felt today by directors as diverse as Quentin Tarantino, Jim Jarmusch, and John Woo. It was his last film. Original French title: UN FLIC.
