Perhaps Bronson's best performance as the mysterious anti-hero Harry Dobbs. Always thought he was at his absolute modern day coolest here, both smart and tough. Also liked the bit where he throws the walnuts against the pane of glass and bounces them off.

I just got the UK Region 2 ROTR DVD today in the mail, looks great! Was just wondering if someone can point out where the scenes are in the French version that aren't in the English version? It says on the case that the English version is 109 minutes and the French version is 113 monites.
There are no missing scenes. It's an entirely different editing, with another negative, alternative takes. Two versions (english and french) were shot at the same time. Maybe the english speaking one is shorter, because Bronson talks faster in his own language...

Description: characters in the film were stretched from one side of the screen to the other !!! the sound was out of sync and very warped ::!!!
This film is flawless, looks like everything here works perfect. It's a well-directed art-house thriller with a great script and a gripping plot from the first till the last second. Marlene Jobert's performance is amazing, so does Bronson's one. The characters are not only well-performed but really well-written too. No matter how much I like a movie I usually get a bit tired and I don't it to last long. However with Le Passager de la pluie it happened the oposite thing: I found the film so enjoyable that I wished it lasted more. This is one of my all-time favorite movies.
