Un homme est mort (A Man Is Dead), (Funerale a Los Angeles) (The Outside Man)
This French-produced thriller was shot entirely in English. Jean-Louis Tritignant stars as Lucien, a hit man who goes to Los Angeles to end the life of an important local mobster. The mobster's heirs, who hired Lucien, had already hired yet another hit man (Roy Scheider) to kill him. He speaks very little English, and the lifestyles and customs of Los Angelenos puzzle him completely. One of the films highlights is its use of many unusual decayed and shabby sites in the Los Angeles area, such as Venice Beach. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The story might be slight, but the acting by Trintignant is just right..."
