7th Art: Le professionnel (1981)

A great passage from the excellent French thriller "Le professionnel" ("The Professional," 1981) with Jean-Paul Belmondo and directed by Georges Lautner:
President N'Jala, under the gun: "It took you French three revolutions and five republics to achieve some semblance of democracy, and you want me to achieve it in one day?!"
Beaumont, ready to shoot: "I don't care. I don't want to hear all this chatter about ethics, morals and comparative history. I don't give a damn."
The score byEnnio Morricone is outstanding as usual.
