a meeting
19 June 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

not the story is important in this case. but only the new meeting between Signoret and Delon. a woman and her family in a small community. a murder. a judge. and an artistic meeting who becomes revelation, maybe not surprise but splendid exercise of use the characters nuances. two great actors and inspired music, beautiful images and the atmosphere of a village are ingredients of a film about values, choices, family spirit , justice. Simone Signoret is the same and this fact is, in same measure, a virtue and a sin. Delon gives a good sketch for a tired man , part of his job and shadow of his life. a film who reminds many others. but who remains special for the tension who defines it after the lost of story details.
