    Brilliantly conceived and brilliantly executed. Super cool heist film. Montand, Volonté and Delon are damn near perfect. 8 years 2 months ago

    Crazy good French heist neonoir. The masterful, 20 minute long, near-silent heist sequence deservedly gets all the attention, but what comes before and after is just as riveting and just as slick. The movie as a whole reminded me a lot of Rififi, complete with great club music moments, which is the ultimate compliment you can give to any heist film. Can't get enough Melville. 5 years 7 months ago

    Far and away the most engrossing heist film I've ever seen. I was on the edge of my seat. Absolutely brilliant! 1 year 4 months ago
