(1962) First things first for back-from-the-slammer Serge Reggiani: a piece-of-cake heist. But why are the flics here already? Could there be a doulos – “squealer” in French underworld argot? A-list gangster Jean-Paul Belmondo is a prime candidate for the title. But then the head-snapping plot twists start coming. 35mm. Approx. 108 min.
“A tricky, attitude drenched thriller… interspersed with sudden spasms of violence.”
– J. Hoberman
“Brutal and subtly brilliant… underscores why the French put the name to Film Noir.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
