Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A classic of the clenched-fist, dark-skied, doom-laden world of noir.
Fresh: A minor classic, mainly for reasons besides its crime story plot -- namely, the urbane fatalism of its cast and the overall mood of inevitability that hangs over every scene.
Fresh: The director's penultimate work.
Fresh: There are unforgettable tableaux of movement, meticulously executed with wordless cool.
Delon, Bourvil and Montand in the same movie, what a cast!! and...the whole thing is directed by Melville, so what else to say!!? Such a french classic, great drama, highly recommended.
Cool & Subtle
This movie is great. The moments of action are fierce, while the rest of the movie is filled with great tension. The heist sequence is really well shot.
