Borsalino and Co. is a 1974 French-Italian crime film directed by Jacques Deray, starring the legendary Alain Delon as Roch Siffredi, the charismatic gangster with a heart of gold. The movie is a sequel to the 1970 film Borsalino, also directed by Jacques Deray and features a significant improvement in the action and the overall storyline.

The film takes place in Marseille, France, during the roaring twenties, where we see the city being terrorized by a new mafia clan, led by a ruthless boss named Marello. With the previous leader, Borsalino, out of the picture, it seems like the city has no savior. That is until Roch Siffredi reappears in the city and takes on the role of the new protector.

Roch Siffredi is the charismatic leader of a small-time gang of hoodlums, who dress as if they just walked out of a GQ shoot. We see them spending their days indulging in various criminal activities like petty theft, fraud, among others. However, their antics are merely a cover for their main plan- taking down Marello and his gang.

Alain Delon's performance as Roch Siffredi is top-notch. He brings a certain style and swagger to the character that makes him impossible not to root for even though he is a petty criminal. He carries roch Siffredi's attitude with such ease and charisma that even when he is at his most ruthless, his charm keeps the audience on his side.

Riccardo Cucciolla portrays Lino, Roch Siffredi's partner in crime, and their chemistry is undeniable. Lino is the more logical of the two, always thinking about the bigger picture, while Roch takes on more of a "let's wing it" approach. The two characters have great comedic timing and make the audience laugh in all the right places.

The cinematography is stunning, and Jacques Deray does an excellent job of capturing the essence of Marseille in the roaring twenties. The film is filled with vibrant colors, elaborate costumes, and a fantastic soundtrack consisting of classic jazz tunes, which help the film feel more like a period piece.

The film's pacing is fast, which keeps the audience engaged throughout the enthralling action sequences. With the help of some excellently choreographed stunts by the stunt team, the fight scenes are intense, and the car chases are thrilling.

Another great addition to the movie is the supporting cast, which consists of some of the biggest names in French cinema. Michel Aumont plays the role of the police officer chasing Roch and Lino throughout the film. He does an excellent job of bringing a sense of urgency and desperation to his character, making you question whether or not Roch and Lino can successfully take down Marello without getting caught.

Daniel Ivernel plays the role of the seasoned criminal who accompanies Roch on his mission to take down Marello. His experience in the criminal underworld helps Roch and Lino navigate the dangerous paths and stay one step ahead of their enemies.

In conclusion, Borsalino and Co. is an excellent installment in the series, offering plenty of action, humor, suspense, and vibrant cinematography. Alain Delon and Riccardo Cucciolla are a perfect duo, bringing charm and wit to their respective roles. With its outstanding performances, impressive production design, and gripping storyline, this film is an excellent example of 70s French cinema.
