I love "ADIEU L'AMI", but I think as european Bronson movies go, "RIDER ON THE RAIN" is even better. Same writer, but a better director, an unusual love story with Marlène Jobert, and lots of suspense. I heard it was Jim Morrison's favorite film...

This is a great movie, even though Rider on the Rain may be technically the better film I prefer this. Bronson and Delon have great chemistry and a very masculine charisma about them. Both actors really shine in the middle of the movie when they are caught in the building together.
It was also very interesting to see Bronson play a character where he wasn't black and white, the shades of gray made his character more interesting which enabled him to steal the film and engage you as he did in most of his supporting roles.
I totally agree.At the begining Bronson's character seemed even more "black" than bronson's typical characters...but the character was perfectly developed and showed off some very "white" aspects.He generally was a "grey" character, just as you said.Bronson's most interesting character besides Harmonica and Arthur Bishop...

This is one of the best written movies Bronson ever did, and one of the best acted one, too. Very different, not just as far as Bronson movies go, just different in general and I liked that. The best scenes were the ones where they are trapped together, great acting and character work. I'm torn between which one is better, this or Rider on the Rain. Both are very special and stand out in Bronson's filmography. Any movie that has Bronson imitating a penguin is tops in my book.
I liked those promo pictures, BTW. Bronson is smoking a cigar on some of those. I don't think we got to see him with a cigar very often in his movies, did we?
You make sounds like you're a mean little ass-kicker... only I ain't convinced. You keep talking and I'm gonna take your head off.
