Jean-Pierre Melville’s final film Un Flic sees him reunite with Alain Delon (Le Cercle Rouge, Le Samouraï), this time starring as a jaded cop on the hunt for a gang of thieves. Opening with a spectacular seaside bank robbery, the film’s tangled web of deceit involves the heist’s ringleader, nightclub owner Simon (Richard Crenna), his glamorous girlfriend (Catherine Deneuve) and the chief detective on the case (Alain Delon), whose ties are all intimately interconnected. A distillation of Melville’s trademark minimalist-cool style, Un Flic is a brilliantly atmospheric policier that pares back the crime genre to its essential core.
Why You Should See This Film
The last in Melville’s influential gangster trilogy that included Le Cercle Rouge and Le Samouraï, Un Flic is another testament to the director’s status as one of the all-time masters of the crime genre. With an enviable wardrobe of silky robes, decadent furs and feathered gowns, Catherine Deneuve is also at peak Deneuve here!
