Review by Library Journal Review

An escaped convict (Lino Ventura) counts on one last score to fund his retirement in Souffle, the first of two noirish crime thrillers by the coolly methodical Jean-Pierre Melville, who knows a thing or two about how to shoot a heist.

For larger collections. High-def digital transfer; lots of extras. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
