MOVIE:  Bob Le Flambeur

NUTSHELL:  Super stylish 1955 noir Montmartre de Melville in which an aging high roller goes bust and prepares for his first job in 20 years.

GOOD THINGS:  Isabelle Corey – the most cutiest patootiest french girl you’ve ever seen, silver-haired and sooo cool Roger Duchesne as Beub, impressively high fuck-me pumps, notes to the cleaning lady, Deauville, Simone Paris as the hooke– um, bartender with a heart of gold

BAD THINGS:  The spoil sport croupier and his wife (Claude Cerval and Colette Fleury)

FEATURES:  Daniel Cauchy, Dubonnet ashtrays – a lot of them, Guy Decomble, closet slots, naked retro french babes!, Gérard Buhr as the bad guy

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Extended Baccarat sequence made my life flash before my eyes.

NOTABLE:  Well I was worried for Beub – very, very worried for Beub. You’ll be surprised how much you’ll feel for the frenchies!

BEST PART:  All those frogs saying “Beub.”

BEST LINE:  You’ll end up a pavement princess.

CROWNS:  4 out of 5
