Description

Classe Tous Risques is a 1960 French Italian International co-production black-and-white gangster film directed by Claude Sautet and starring Lino Ventura, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Sandra Milo. Now widely considered a masterpiece, at the time of its release it was somewhat overshadowed by the French New Wave. It did however influence the French cinema, especially Jean-Pierre Melville's work. It is an adaptation of a novel by José Giovanni, telling the story of Abel Davos, French mobster trying to make his way from Italy through Marseille to Paris and hunted by the police, and Eric Stark, who turns out to be the only person willing to help Davos. The Abel Davos character is based on the real life Abel Danos who José Giovanni met in prison. From 1941 to 1944 Danos was a henchman for the French Gestapo run by Henri Lafont et Pierre Bonny. Danos was sentenced to death and shot for Collaboration on March 13, 1952. The film was banned in Finland during the sixties.
