Paris: Les Productions Montaigne, 1966. Vintage French grande poster (affiche) for the 1966 French film noir.
Director Melville's ninth film, and while this is saying something, probably his bleakest. Ventura plays a mobster who emerges from prison determined to reclaim his old crime empire, only to find that times have changed since he left. Railing against said changes, he sends himself and his family on a downward spiral that pits nearly everyone on both sides of the law against him.
47 x 63 inches. Rolled, on archival linen. Near Fine.
