“Jean-Paul Belmondo had that rugged devil-may-care charm, and Marcello Mastrioanni was the debonair personification of restless continental drifting. Jean-Louis Trintignant may not have projected the same testosteronized charisma or slim-suited elegance of his peers, but he had a secret weapon up his sleeve: He could channel a vast world of Euro-neuroses in every minimalized glance. The chance to witness Trintignant's mondo-prolific career in toto - from frowning male ingenue to éminence grise - makes the series nearly as invaluable as the man of the hour.”
