Max Et Les Ferrailleurs
France, Italy | 1971 | Claude Sautet
Michel Piccoli and Romy Schneider star in this 40-year-old French crime film by Claude Sautet (A Simple Story, Un Coeur en Hiver/A Heart in Winter) that was released in America only last year. Piccoli plays Max, a determined police detective who poses as a wealthy banker in order to lure a gang of thieves into committing a heist. Then during the robbery he will catch them red-handed. Unfortunately, a high-class prostitute (Schneider) involved with both Max and the gang’s ringleader gums up the works. “Four stars…A gleefully seedy study of lowlifes on both sides of the law.” –Time Out New York.
