    Fabulous story of the life of a gangster, sort of in the vein of Goodfellas as he grows up forms lifelong friendships, becomes successful and then old. The film is set in the present with quite long flash-backs and works very well. The music mixes period choices with an original soundtrack of great beauty. The film is thoroughly convincing and gripping. If you ever get the chance make sure to see it.

    Un film d'action français de ce genre si particulier qui nous fait aimer les films français. Lanvin est grandiose comme dans ses meilleures interprétations.

    Gritty, real, beautifully shot, up close & personal. If you can remember what the 70's looked like you've had too many flashbacks.

    Enesima recreacion de saga mafiosa, esta vez situada en francia, con la tension racial de fondo. En este caso, una familia gitana es la que se encarama hasta lo mas alto de la piramide criminal. Totalmente europea, la cinta mezcla retratos de personajes torturados(Tcheky Karyo) con personajes deseosos de salir de esa vida de crimen y desgracia. Nada que envidiar a las producciones estadounidenses, pero si que necesita un poco mas de ritmo, sobre todo en lo que concierne a los flashbacks de la vida de los dos personajes principales...

    Marchal on tehnyt jo monta varsin pätevää rikosleffaa mutta jotenkin se todellinen mestariteos vielä uupuu. Les Lyonnais ei myöskään sellainen ole. Kuvaavaa ex-poliisi Marchalin leffoissa on se että rosvot ovat aina suoraselkäisempiä kuin poliisit. Tosin tämä on yleisestikin aika perinteistä ranskalaisissa rikoselokuvissa. Pääsosan Gerard Lanvinissa on kyllä äijäkarismaa enemmän kuin pienessä kylässä!
