    This along with Le Samourai is the best Melville. A gorgeous war film where every characters' deep sense of regret and remorse is felt. 6 years 3 months ago

    I'm breathless.. This movie is perfect on all levels, a true masterpiece.

    Please do yourself a favor and watch this one if you haven't seen it yet (and if you have, just watch it again for god's sake!).

    This is, without a doubt, Melville's masterpiece, although I do prefer Le samourai. 9 years 1 month ago
