And it was like Melville organised the weather for the scene.
not to be a dick but yeah, HE DID. It's called film making.
Okay, I did come off like a dick but seriously, do you think filmmakers cannot create rain in a scene if they want too? It's like almost saying 'Gee, he was really lucky the actor wore that cop uniform in that scene. It really made him look cop like.'
Again, i apologize if i'm unfairly ripping your statement apart but its a very naive comment.
Delon didn't look too interested in the role either.
For you, I totally see what you're saying, however I didn't think Delon was FORCED to do this film against his wishes(as your not interested statement implies), I thought that was integral to his Character. i saw That Quality as part of the cop he was playing, a man who wasn't superficially hunting down the bad guys but a cop who had his duty- where as the non-cop part of his personality would of looked the other way. Its sort of the angels sitting on his shoulder syndrome and he goes with the angel not because He wants to, but because its his job/his role in society.
To me it actually makes his cop portrait more poetic, because the difference between a cop and criminal is a badge. The reason a cop is good at his job is that he wants to be criminal and is as good as the best criminal(because he's as much in love with crime as the crooks) but its his nature to do good that stops him and makes him work for the other team.
Melville must have had quite a collection of fog machines. And the ocean storm machine was fantastic. Where can I get one of those?
She gave me a smile so sweet you could have poured it on your pancakes.
