Synopsis

In a profession-defining overall performance, Alain Delon performs Jef Costello, a agreement killer with samurai instincts. After sporting out a perfectly planned hit, Jef finds himself stuck between a continual police investigator and a ruthless employer, and no longer even his armor of fedora and trench coat can defend him. An elegantly stylized masterpiece of cool by maverick director Jean‑Pierre Melville, Le samouraï is a razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and Sixties French popular culture—with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology.
