Subway is filmed mostly inside the more hidden parts of the Paris Subway system.
A young woman, Helena, is having an affair with a young blond man called Fred, Christophe Lambert. She is bored of her
life and resents her husband planning her life out for her. She invites Fred to a party at her home, where Fred decides to
blow her husbands safe and rob it. Along with whatever else he gets, he steals a file containing stuff about Helena. He then
proceeds to try and blackmail Helena for 5,000,000 francs for the file back. Helena goes looking for Fred, but so does her
husbands gangster friends and so does the Police.

A lot of cat and mouse action ensues. It's a pretty good thriller on the whole. Jean looks very young in this film, I
think as the years go by, they make him all the more handsome and sexier as he gets older.
