Yves Boisset's "Un condé" (from the French slang for cop) is a sort of Gallic "Dirty Harry", a police thriller that raises awkward questions about how far across the line the good guys can step in order to clear up society's mess. Inspector Favenin (Michel Bouquet) undoubtedly goes too far. When his idealistic but ineffectual partner is killed pursuing the culprits of a gang revenge attack (a pursuit instigated by Favenin himself), the embittered cop, realising that conventional police methods won't work, takes matters into his own hands.

At first, it's hard to resist cheering as he takes on the worst of the gang thugs using their own methods. But when his ruthless pursuit for revenge starts to impinge on the more sympathetic characters in the story, including an essentially decent man who gets beaten up in front of his young son, we are forced to question where our sympathies lie.

Tough-as-Cop thriller from a clearly not-so-belle France, directed with a real flair for capturing gritty urban violence by Yves Boisset, whose muscular direction translates into suitably grimy thick-ear entertainment. Michel Bouquet is genuinely chilling as the hard boiled copper whose amoral and brutal journey to avenge the fruitless death of a fellow officer leads him deep into a violent existential nightmare.
