Chichester – Cinema at New Park

November 20, 2023 @ 18:00

After hiding out in Milan for nearly a decade, fugitive gangland chief Abel Davos (Lino Ventura) sneaks back to Paris with his children despite a death sentence hanging over his head.

Accompanied by appointed guardian Eric Stark (Jean-Paul Belmondo, fresh off his star turn in Breathless) and beset by backstabbing former friends, Abel begins a journey through the postwar Parisian underworld that’s both throat grabbing and soul searching. What can Abel, a wanted man with two small children and only Stark as a friend, do? “Never give ground,” he tells Eric, but how long can he hold to his code?
