A tragic, beautifully filmed story of a man against whom the fates seem to have conspired. A long, sad journey toward an almost foreordained conclusion. Outstanding work again from Gabin and Delon.

Plot and atmosphere aren't as good as Le Samourai or Le Cercle Rouge, but Jean Gabin show a lot of humanity as a trusting social worker. Prison riot and court scenes are excellent. Female characters needed more development.
