Full movie description "A Man to Kill":Barcelona, 1967. Hans Fromm, a German-born architect, lives an well-ordered everyday life. He has become the target of an antifascist death squad though. Indeed their leader, Julius, whose brother was killed by Schmidt, a merciless S.S., believes, without being absolutely certain, that Fromm and Schmidt are the same man. The team, whose other members are Georges, the son of a deportee liquidated by Schmidt craving for action, Raphaël, a mercenary type, Nils, the photographer and Romain, watch Fromm's every move until Julius, convinced at last that the quiet German is their man, gives the green light for the operation. They manage to lure the former Nazi to an old house but Schmidt/Fromm won't let himself be captured so easily...
Reviews of the A Man to Kill"Un homme a abattre" aka "A Man to Kill" aka "A Marked Man" (1967) is a thriller done in a low-key and realistic style. The setting is Barcelona and a team of apparently private men, including Jean-Louis Trintignant, are spying on a suspected murderous Nazi SS officer (Luis Padros) some 25 years after his crimes. The head man Julius (Luis Prendes) isn't sure that the man is actually the one that he's after for his crimes, including killing his brother. Going now by the name Fromm, his appearance is quite different. Julius wants to be certain because he wants revenge and he doesn't want to assassinate the wrong man.
The story develops as a kind of spy movie or police procedural or policier, but because these are not officials who belong to an institution and because of the unique circumstances involving Julius's goal, the details of the story develop in ways of its own. Uncertainty of identification plays a large part, leading to a tense sequence in which Julius takes risks to achieve certainty. And since there is not going to be a conventional arrest and Fromm doesn't place himself into a position to be kidnapped, the group has to devise a different kind of lure. This too is not easy. Fromm is very cautious and he is part of a network of ex-Nazis. In the film's opening, Trintignant has had to run down and kill one of these men to avoid being identified as spying on them. Within a few days, when the group learns of his death, they will be alerted.
This is not a well-known film, being absent from some lists of French thrillers. It's a good one though. I consider films like this as a variety of noir, a kind of offshoot or development, although I've not seen critics making this kind of connection. The fact that everyone is outside the official law contributes to this as do the matter-of-fact way in which the story is told and the realism of it. I may be way off base, but in any event movies done this way are quite enjoyable. They have a mood of quiet tension in which you can't be sure what will happen next. Things can go wrong. Happy coincidences and endings are far from assured.
