Movie Info

This French-produced thriller was shot entirely in English. Jean-Louis Tritignant stars as Lucien, a hit man who goes to Los Angeles to end the life of an important local mobster. The mobster's heirs, who hired Lucien, had already hired yet another hit man (Roy Scheider) to kill him. He speaks very little English, and the lifestyles and customs of Los Angelenos puzzle him completely. One of the films highlights is its use of many unusual decayed and shabby sites in the Los Angeles area, such as Venice Beach. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

The story might be slight, but the acting by Trintignant is just right...

½

Not bad, not great, thriller with a high quality cast and a very 70's look. Decent blend of action and personal drama. Ann-Margret, deeply tanned and strawberry blonde, looks astonishingly beautiful.

More then expected for this intelligent French-American crime drama. Shot in Los Angeles, a hired French hit man by a Los Angeles mob family finds himself the subject of a hitman himself. A bit off-beat (unconventional) French directed movie, the French seem to invade Los Angeles and start shooting things up near the end of the film with their American gang counterparts at a bizarre funeral. Be sure to wait for deceased, its worth waiting for and a bit amusing as well. Roy Scheider (Jaws) excellent as always, stars with French actor and hired hitman Jean-Louis Trintignant along with a few well established medium grade "stars" of the time such as Ann-Margret, Angie Dickenson. A cat and mouse thriller from back street alleys to mansions. *************************************** CAST Angie Dickinson Roy Scheider Ann Margaret Jean-Louis Trintignant CREW Producer: Jacques Bar Editor: William K.
