At one point, Le gang des Lyonnais became so big that they were approached by powerful right-wing groups affiliated with certain political parties. Director Marchal balances style and substance very well. The retro tunes during the flashbacks are also given enough room to breathe. Balance is also excellent, even though the action moves quite fast through the '60, '70s, '80s and the present.

Olivier Marchal's latest film looks beautiful on Blu-ray. Detail is truly immaculate, even when the camera follows closely the gangsters during the intense shootouts, while clarity is very pleasing. Contrast and colors fluctuate as the action jumps from the '60s, '70s and '80s and then to the present, but it is clear that these are stylistic changes meant to enhance.
The dialog is also free of macho lines. Lanvin is clearly the star of the film, looking slightly jaded but almost always demanding respect from those around him. Karyo is also terrific. Note : Earlier this year, Les Lyonnais was nominated for Cesar Award for Most Promising Actor (Dimitri Storoge).
