    Brilliantly conceived and brilliantly executed. Super cool heist film. Montand, Volonté and Delon are damn near perfect. 10 years 10 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. 8 years 3 months ago
