Editorial Reviews

Gangster impresario Roch Siffredi (Alain Delon - Flic Story; The Leopard) has pre-war Marseille in the palm of his well-manicured hand. But when an upstart Italian mob tries to claim the French port town's vice trade for their own, the resulting gang war leaves Siffredi's partner dead, his theater and nightclub in ruins, his brothel vacant and his allies turned against him. "Kill me fast," Siffredi warns victorious rival Valpone (Riccardo Cuciolla - Sacco and Vanzetti). But Valpone's leering reply, "that would be absurd," seals the destinies of both men. Tortured, humiliated, and cast into an insane asylum, Siffredi is stripped of everything except an all-consuming vendetta against Valpone. For Borsalino and Co., director Jacques Deray (Flic Story) and producer/star Delon pull out all the stops to create a film of uncompromising violence, impeccable period detail and lucid pulp storytelling. Mixing gunfights, bombings, arson, stabbings and assassinations with a meticulous plot that is equal parts Dashiell Hammett and Sergio Leone, Borsalino and Co. is an action-packed crime film of sly wit and passionate vision. Magnetic performances from Delon and Catherine Rouval (Va Savoir), as Siffredi's brother-keeper love, place Borsalino and Co. in the front ranks of the French gun-operas made in the wake of Delon's international smash hit, The Sicilian Clan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Borsalino and Co ??? Title? February 24, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great movie - real action - captures the period - authentic - unlike Hollywood plastic products. Best with French dialogue - English subs.

Importatn to remember it's the follow on from Borsalino - essential to see that first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delon in Spats August 31, 2008
Format:DVD
Delon finds himself on the losing side of a gang war in 30s Marseilles. But don't worry -- the crease in his slicked back hair won't stay mussed for long. Lavish period crime saga moves at a very fast clip and while some of the action gets pretty brutal, it's almost irresistibly entertaining. (I had no idea this was the sequel to the earlier picture with Belmondo -- though the first shot should have clued me in. For me it worked as a standalone, though I'm now anxious to see the first.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of style but not much fun September 10, 2010
Format:DVD
Borsalino and Co. begins with the funeral of Jean-Paul Belmondo's character from the first film, leaving Alain Delon to hold the fort almost single-handed, and the results aren't as entertaining as they could be as he swears revenge and finds himself on the losing side of a gang war with a gang of Italian fascists looking to destabilise the country through crime and drugs, with Marseilles a natural starting point. The choice of villains are interesting, as are their weapons of choice - they prefer to kill underlings and employees (even blowing up a bad music hall comic in the middle of his act: a bit redundant considering he was clearly dying long before the bomb went off) while publicly humiliating their bosses - but the film never really rises above the average. There's plenty of stylish décor and sharp suits, a couple of decent shootouts but not much fun (it's an hour before Claude Bolling's famous theme from the first film is heard), so it's no surprise that the US-set sequel promised by the end title never materialised.

The poor standards conversion transfer on Kino's region 1 DVD doesn't help matters either. Extras are stills gallery, original theatrical trailer, and trailers for The Sicilian Clan, Flic Story, Two Men in Town, Mort d'un Pourri, Trois Hommes a Abbatre, Pour la Peau d'un Flic, Le Battant, Parole de Flic and Ne Reveilles pas un Flic Qui Dort.
