Plein soleil: Based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith (who also wrote Strangers on a Train), René Clément's striking study from 1960 of a glamorous and complex psychopath features a career-defining turn from a young, beautiful and ultra-cool Alain Delon. In a taut, expertly crafted thriller Delon is Ripley, an emissary sent by a wealthy American industrialist to save his son, errant playboy Philippe Greenleaf (Maurice Ronet), from a life of decadence in Rome. Insinuating himself into Greenleaf?s existence, Ripley practises his signature and dresses up in his clothes before attempting to steal his life, his girl and, most importantly, his money.
L'Eclisse: Alongside L'Avventura and La Notte, L'Eclisse completes director Michelangelo Antonioni?s ambitious 60s trilogy on doomed relationships in a fractured world. The tale involves a woman, Vittoria (Monica Vitti, The Red Desert), who has just suffered the break-up of an imperfect relationship with a staunch intellectual (Francisco Rabal). Piero (Alain Delon, The Leopard), a brash young stockbroker, casts his romantic gaze in Vittoria's direction and Vittoria's resolve gradually relents, precipitating a tentative affair. Yet their innermost fears play upon them in ways that go against an honest expression of their love - and against a lasting relationship.
Un flic: Made the year before his death, Jean-Pierre Melville?s final film and his third with Alain Delon after Le Samouraï and Le Cercle Rouge is the director?s most extreme and underrated gangster movie. Parisian police commissioner Coleman (Delon) is not a happy man, but he does what he can to get through each day. Coleman finds solace in his affair with Cathy (Catherine Deneuve), who also happens to be the girlfriend of Coleman's friend, Simon (Richard Crenna), the head of a gang of daring criminals. As the commissioner?s pursuit of the gang intensifies, so does the rivalry between the two men.
Traitement de choc: One of the more unusual entries in Delon?s estimable filmography, Traitement de choc is an effective psychological thriller that also offers a timely comment on medical practice and the exploitation of the poor for the benefit of the wealthy. Hélène Masson (Annie Girardot, Hidden), a stressed-out retail manager takes up a course of therapy at a centre run by the secretive Dr Devilers (Alain Delon). At first, Hélène is encouraged by Devilers? apparent success with his other patients but soon becomes concerned when one of her fellow patients commits suicide. Later, one of the Portuguese serving boys disappears after asking her for help and Hélène soon realises that something is seriously wrong.
Flic story: Based on the memoir of French police detective Roger Borniche, Flic Story grippingly recreates a violent post-war crime spree that shocked a nation still reeling from Nazi occupation. When Emile Buisson (Jean-Louis Trintignant, Three Colours Red) France's most notorious criminal escapes from a mental asylum, his bloody rampage has politicians and the press demanding results. Paris cop Roger Borniche (Alain Delon, Le Samouraï) gets the thankless job of finding Buisson and either bringing him in or stopping him dead. Through rooftop pursuits, alley stakeouts, nightclub showdowns, and car to car gun battles, Borniche, a stylish and scrupulously ethical "flic" (French slang for "cop"), is forced to break the rules he usually only bends.
