Jesús Fernández Santos El Pais (Spain) It's as if the film is explicitly dedicated to narrating the virtues and sins of the male world. [Full Review in Spanish] Jul 15, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member A little bit better than ? Un Flic ?. Still boring however. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good policier with great performance by Trintignault, and an anachronistic, and charasmatic, one from Delon. Direction is a little pedestrian, but this is enjoyable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member both leads are great; Tritigant is part animal, machine, lost soul; Delon knowis exactly how much to care about anything; a great police procedural, Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Saddly this is a lot like Melville with none of the substance, excitement, or skill. A for effort I guess. Delon is good at least. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Jacques Deray dismisses the reconstructionist approach to crime films used by his contemporaries (Jean Luc Godard and Jean Pierre Melville) through refusal of an artistic treatment and the use of traditional, albeit expertly presented, narrative devices. Without application of these more accessible facets, Flic Story would have obscured a brilliant character study regarding the necessity of desperation when working to achieve status or committing acts of revenge. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Detective romp with the interminably cigarette smoking Alain Delon. Some unfortunate but still quaint cinematography of a made for BBC thriller. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
