Le Doulos by Jean-Pierre Melville ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the title screens explain, in gangster slang, 'doulos' means 'hat.' In the slang shared by criminal and police, 'doulos' also designates the person who wears it: the informer. Through shadowy back streets on the edge of Paris, an ingenious cat and mouse game is played as two underworld characters, seemingly working against each other, find themselves in a deadly entanglement of their own making but infinitely larger than both of them. Faugel, a thief recently released from prison, and Silien, Faugel's best friend and all-around suspicious character, are up against shady nightclub owner Nuttheccio, and the police's Capt. Clain, ruthless as any criminal. The hapless gangsters know two things: their sense of honor is the only thing they can take with them to the grave, and that date with the grave is coming all too soon. By Jean-Pierre Melville, French poet of crime cinema, full of shadows, night, trench coats, guns, tough guys, cigarettes, slinky dames, cocktail bars, crooked cops, betrayal, and loot

Résumé: Comédie fantaisiste. 1912. La reporter et feuilletoniste Adèle Blanc-Sec parvient à ramener d'Égypte la momie du médecin personnel de Ramsès II, dont le savoir millénaire pourrait sauver sa soeur, plongée dans un état cataleptique depuis un accident survenu cinq ans plus tôt. Mais à son arrivée à Paris, l'intrépide jeune femme apprend que son ami Espérandieu, le vieux savant qui devait ranimer la momie, a été emprisonné puis condamné à mort pour avoir fait éclore l'oeuf d'un ptérodactyle. Sans se démonter, Adèle planifie l'évasion d'Espérandieu, tout en tentant de retrouver le volatile préhistorique, qui terrorise Paris, avant qu'il ne soit abattu par le chasseur de fauves Justin de Saint-Hubert, dépêché sur les lieux pour seconder l'inspecteur Caponi dans son enquête. L'aventureuse écrivaine reçoit alors l'aide inespérée d'Andrej Sporovski, un jeune scientifique futé, mais très timide, qui lui avoue maladroitement son profond amour pour elle. [(c) Médiafilm].
