Editor's note: "Le Marginal" is a French action movie performed by Famous French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo. But it is more important that its composer is Ennio Morricone. A large number oriental elements (gong, drum, cymbal) was used in the theme melody of the movie and combined with classical western orchestra. It forms a strong, clarion, advance bravely and energetic atmosphere. I think that it is a outstanding model combined oriental and western music, it also is a friendship symbol between the great master Ennio Morricone and Jean-Paul Belmondo. It make that I remember another movie cooperated by Morricone and Belmondo -- "Le Professionnel"(1981) .The music of in the "Le Marginal" can be called a sister writings with the "Chi Mai"-- Theme of Le Professionnel. I think you will agree my idea if you listened the music. (If you have a large sound equipment, please right click here to download its high biterate Mp3 for best effect). For greet to Morricone's concert in Beijing and Shanghai on May 21-23,2009, we specially publish the web page for share

Review Summary and comments

Plot-1: In another typical Jean-Paul Belmondo vehicle, the French action hero plays a policeman prone to advancing the cause of justice by any means necessary. On his agenda is a powerful drug cartel working out of Paris and Marseilles, with a drug lord (Henry Silva) who is essentially inaccessible -- but not immortal. Stunts (performed by Belmondo) and chase scenes on land and water enliven the story, but the scenes with Belmondo's love interest are rather marginal themselves. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide (here)


Plot-2: Commissaire Philippe Jordan is determined to crush a notorious drugs syndicate run by the elusive magnate Sauveur Meccacci. His methods are far from orthodox, however, and his one-man crusade is not appreciated by his police colleagues... (here)

Plot-3: Just as Jean-Paul Belmondo's THE PROFESSIONAL (1981) recalled the Charles Bronson 'loner' action vehicles, this one evokes memories of Clint Eastwood's "Dirty Harry" cop shows…which, by extension, connects it to the Italian poliziotteschi – of which the American co-star of THE OUTSIDER, Henry Silva, was a regular! Anyway, Belmondo is a maverick cop up against drug kingpin Silva: he intercepts a consignment of heroin (chasing the speedboat transporting it via helicopter), but the criminal's influence with city officials gets him transferred from Marseille to a low-life district! As was the case with the earlier film, the credits take care to establish the fact that the ageing star performed his own (often dangerous) stunts; in fact, every fifteen minutes or so, he's seen getting into a scuffle, a chase or a shoot-out – without necessarily advancing the main plot.

Still, in spite of the protagonist's superficial nonchalance, he's shown to have a heart: befriending a hooker, saving a convict's teenage daughter from life as a junkie, and paternally overseeing the 'legitimate' activity of a young small-time crook; when the latter opposes Silva's offer of 'protection' and winds up dead, the conflict between policeman and racketeer becomes a personal one. Mind you, the overall handling is anything but subtle – and blatantly commercial (why else would we be treated to the excess of sleaze on display, including an irrelevant excursion at a gay club?)! The film features another Ennio Morricone score which virtually hinges on a single catchy riff, though it's not quite as haunting as his work on THE PROFESSIONAL. The R2 DVD I rented also featured an Audio Commentary by director Deray which was, unfortunately, unsubtitled and enticing theatrical trailers for two other films Belmondo made for director Philippe De Broca, LE MAGNIFIQUE (1973) and L'INCORRIGIBLE (1975).(here)

Plot-4: Belmondo is a tough cop. He goes after a big-time drug dealer (played by Henry Silva, normally a great villain - see "Sharky's Machine"; but here he is clearly dubbed, and because of that he lacks his usual charisma). He goes to the scuzziest places of Paris and Marseilles, asks for some names, beats up some people, gets the names, goes to more scuzzy places, asks for more names, beats up more people, etc. The whole movie is punch after punch after punch. It seems that the people who made it had no other ambition than to create the French equivalent of "Dirty Harry". Belmondo, who was 50 here, does perform some good stunts at the beginning; apart from those, "Le Marginal" is a violent, episodic, trite, shallow and forgettable cop movie.(here)

Plot-5: Belmondo is a tough cop and if he wants to get at a big-time drug-dealer he's going to have to use his fists to find him. (here)
