Beginning with a remarkable bank robbery on a deserted beach front and also featuring a helicopter heist shot in real time, UN FLIC is perhaps Jean-Pierre Melville’s most perfect synthesis of style and suspense. A wonderfully fatalistic study of loss and deception, and a distillation of Melville’s interest in the codes of loyalty and honor, the film marks a fitting epitaph to one of the finest careers in contemporary cinema. *"A fitting final act for noir master Jean-Pierre Melville..." - Simon Abrams, **Village Voice*** *"...a pleasure to experience." - Kenneth Turan, **The Los Angeles Times***
