Choice of Arms ★★½ 1983

A gangster's rural retirement is undone by a dim-witted criminal in this sometimes-gripping drama. Montand and Deneuve are serviceable in undemanding roles of the gangster and his glamorous wife; Depar-dieu is more impressive as the troublemaking punk. In French with English subtitles. 114m/C VHS . FR Gerard Depardieu, Catherine Deneuve, Yves Montand; D: Alain Corneau.
