Le Cercle Rouge

      Melville at his peak. Once again by filming a story of men, lonely, gathered for a break in at a jewellery store, and tracked down by a commissioner just as lonely as them.
      His fetishism for objects - hat, raincoat, car, revolver - his taste for masculine atmospheres - empty and soulless apartments, the motel, the strip club - his sleek filming, supported by admirable glossy cinematography of Henri Decae.
