Alain Delon, Françoise Perier, Nathalie Delon, Cathy Rosier,

Alain Delon gives one of his best performances as “The Samurai,” so called in obvious homage to the Japanese masterless ronin who answers only to an internalized code of honor. A killer by contract in the world of Paris nightclubs and hidden bosses, he has a polished, chilling method perfectly suited to Melville’s own...   More >
