Le gitan (The Gypsy) Reviews
There are some neat ideas in "The Gypsy" but early on the execution is inconsistent to say the least. Amgongst them are two criminals in close proximity to each other but never close enough to really have it out. Eventually, the movie pulls it together, not only because of its neat action sequences which energize the proceedings, but also the steel-eyed determined charisma of Alain Delon and a weathered performance from Paul Meurisse. What surprisingly puts the movie over the top is the genuineness of emotions. That's not to mention the film's social conscience as applied to bringing the persecution of the gypsies to light which just goes to show you that we can always use an outlaw hero which the world seems to be desperately lacking these days.
