Purple Noon (Plein Soleil)

Tom Ripley (Alain Delon) travels to Italy to visit his playboy friend Philippe Greenleaf and Philippe’s new fiancée, Marge Duval. What Philippe doesn’t know is that his father has paid Tom to convince his son to abandon Europe and return to his family responsibilities in San Francisco. However, when Philippe’s family cuts off their funding of Tom’s extravagant lifestyle during his covert mission, he discovers another way to maintain his newfound standard of living. This film is based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Talented Mr Ripley.
