Maurice Faugel was just released from prison when he killed his friend Gilbert Varnove. Maurice then tries to commit a robbery. The police appear and he tries to run but the police shoot him and he gets wounded. He loses consciousness and wakes up in the apartment of his friend Jean. He believes that his friend Silien told the police about his plans because Silien is said to be a police informant. Silien is questioned by the police about the murder of Gilbert and the robbery before the police pick up Maurice in a bar where he reads a newspaper report about his girlfriend, Theresa's death. Therese was found in her car at the bottom of a quarry. Silien is released and goes to his ex-girlfriend Fabienne. With Fabienne's help, Silien accuses another of committing murder and robbery and leaves Maurice in the room. Maurice is released from prison and discovered that it was Therese who told the police about the robbery and Silien and Jean, who killed her. Maurice reveals that he killed Gilbert because Gilbert killed his girlfriend Arlette four years ago to keep her quiet. Silien returns home, but when Silien leaves, Maurice recalls that he hired a man to kill Silien because he thought he had betrayed him and persecuted him.
Unique movie from 1963, a real hit in the cinemas in it's times. First of all, I need to say that Le Doulos is not like the other Thriller movies made according to the usual scheme. You'll remember many scenes and dialogues from this movie, it's a great source for memes. I couldn't forget about the great cast, Jean Paul Belmondo and Serge Reggiani really did their work perfectly. The man who directed Le Doulos is Jean-Pierre Melville. Enjoy watching, if you want to load your own subtitles you can do it in the player settings, you can also change quality to full hd.
