Choice of Arms (French: Le Choix des armes) is a 1981 French crime film directed by Alain Corneau. The main roles are played by Yves Montand, Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu.


After escaping from prison, Mickey (Gerard Depardieu) and his elderly mentor Serge face a gangster hit squad and a shootout with the police.

They retreat to a ranch owned by Noel (Yves Montand), a former underworld figure who knows Serge is now a successful businessman.

Police arrive looking for the escaped convicts - the laidback chief inspector (Michel Galabru) and his more intense younger colleague (Gerard Lanvin).
