A 1955 French thriller by the blacklisted Hollywood director Jules Dassin. The opening half-hour—the burglary of a jewelry store, filmed in meticulous detail—is as good as its inspiration in The Asphalt Jungle, but the film turns moralistic and sour in the last half, when the thieves fall out. With Jean Servais, Robert Hossein, and Dassin himself as one of the crooks. In French with subtitles.
