    Seen in 35 mm. Great experience,which makes all the more sense especially in view of the surprising and great ending. The experience of the film stock is also included here. Masterpiece.

    Always wanted to see. Ever since I saw an illustrated photo book by Fanfan le Tulipe in the library when I was a little boy, I've looked at it all the time. And lo and behold : Fanfan lives up to his cult classic status. By far probably at least the best humored swashbuckler in movie history. Great writing and great acting. Gerard Philippe is indeed a miracle.
    A complete joy.

    The Assassin


    The most beautiful lens flares, the most beautiful color palettes, the most fascinating use of aspect ratio, a score that keeps you deep into the mood of these pictures where the sadness is told in old stories from the past which lie like the veil of the curtains, blowin in the wind, on this film and the inner strife of our leading actress concludes to the fact that the film denies genre expectations, instead of a coherent flow, the film interleaves but shows another essential.

    Nature and time in itself in a full balanced film.

    "Crime's aggressive and so is the law. Ordinary people of your class don't understand the criminal need for violence."

    The essence of so many Siegel films, here said in a dialogue of a brutal real time thriller on location in a tight way. There is not only a second too much. A brilliant little masterpiece !
