An adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel The Talented Mr. Ripley, this film stars Alain Delon as Tom Ripley, a duplicitous American charmer in Rome on a mission to bring his privileged acquaintance Philippe Greenleaf back to the United States; what initially seems a carefree tale of friendship soon morphs into a thrilling saga of seduction, identity theft, and murder. Bonus features include the original English language trailer, an archival interview with Alain Delon, and more.

Ms Mustard is right this French film is much better than the 90's remake. This role showcases why Alain Delon was such a huge star.

not my usual pick for a film, but enjoyed this one - and it's much better than the US remake.

Alain Delon is STUNNING (I think the dvd box says "at his most impossibly beautiful", and a VERY good actor at such a young age. The supplementary material: interview with Delon is very interesting too. Much prefer this to the American remake with Jude Law and Matt Damon.
