Borsalino and Co. back to product details

Rub-Outs and Pretty Scenery

I found BORSALINO & CO. a bit more enjoyable than the original, which I saw some 35 years ago. It's pretty much the same France-in-the-1930s ambience: great sets, cars, clothes and music, minus the Jean-Paul Belmondo character (who bit the dust in the first film: this one begins with his funeral). Director Jacques Deray brings no more (or less) than standard, professional pizzazz to the proceedings, which basically amounts to revenge rained down on one crime syndicate by another, less nasty one.

There is a nod to the political/social/economic situation of the day, but basically this is an excuse to look more favorably upon Delon's set of killers because the other batch are right-wing and Hitler-loving. A pretty time-waster for those--like me--who enjoy gorgeous homes, deco night clubs and posh scenery, along with lots of gangland rub-outs.
