Bob le Flambeur

Posted by martinteller on April 23, 2006

I’ve seen the remake (The Good Thief) and I can say without hesitation that the original is way more entertaining.  Not a whole lot to say, just a really fun flick.  I loved the lighting and the romantic air that hung about the streets of Montmartre.  You really want to inhabit that world.  It’s interesting that although Bob has a soft spot for women, one gets the feeling that Melville might have a touch of the misogynist in him.  It’s the women in the film who mess things up, at one point even “Lady Luck” gets blamed.  Rating: 8
