France, 1983

Please note

Sorry, we aren't able to make images or video for this item available to the public online.

The high walls of a prison. Two running shadows in the night, a parked Volvo car whose engine is running. Suddenly, the shrieking sound of an alarm hooter. Both men get hastily inside the car which starts immediately. A well directed drama about a retired gangster (Yves Montand) forced into an antagonistic relationship with a young punk. (Gerard Depardieu).
