International Cinema’s Greatest Tough Guys

If you like your bad guys with an accent, head to Film Forum’s new series Les Durs — a three-week, 32-film festival that kicked off this week, spotlighting the movies of three French tough guys. The cinema house celebrates the work of stars Jean Gabin, Lino Ventura, and Jean-Paul Belmondo during the festival, featuring classics and rare imports. Les Durs runs through August 2. To accompany the festival, we’ve selected some more tough guys from international cinema who aren’t afraid to raise hell and live by their own rules.
