After a long losing streak, a dapper Parisian hood with a weakness for the gaming tables decides to roll the dice one last time with an ambitious plan to rob a casino. As the titular "flambeur," or high roller, Roger Duchesne is the essence of cool in Jean-Pierre Melville's stylish homage to the Hollywood Golden Age gangster genre. The ironic denouement is perfect. For all collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
