The heist sequence, which takes place in almost complete silence, is a highlight in a film full of highlights. Masterful.

Absolutely fascinating and suspenseful. I can't believe this didn't make They Shoot Pictures' top 1000.

The French noir film Rififi has an extended, almost silent sequence that details a jewelry store heist in detail, and on that basis alone, should be of interest to caper film fans. It's particularly interesting to see the thieves work out how to get around a high-tech (in 1955!) security system in clever low-tech ways. But that's just the second act. Getting away with the loot is a whole other story, and the film balances well the thieves' love lives and gangland enemies into the mix. The title song gets a cool number too. My one complaint, and I don't think I can excuse it because of the era, is its casual misogyny. We're told - and shown - that hard men slap their women around, and those women like it. It's not even necessary to the plot! Makes it rather difficult to care about some of these guys, you know?
