A classic of French noir starring Alain Delon, in trenchcoat and fedora, as an emotionless killer on the pitiless streets of 60s Paris. "A razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture - with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology - maverick director Jean-Pierre Melville's masterpiece defines cool."
