Tony Stephanois, just out of prison and angry at his girl Mado's infidelity, decides to join his pals Jo and Mario in an ambitious crime. With Italian safe expert Cesar, they meticulously plan the burglary of a large jewelry establishment. Not a word is spoken as the crime is carried out. And then things begin to go wrong...


One of the first caper films--and one of the best Four men plan a daring robbery in France.Everything goes well until one of the robbers does something real stupid and things fall apart quickly and violently.A film noir caper film shot on a shoe string budget in France. It's very well-done and acted and (for its time) extremely violent.My only complaint is that it goes on too long (a little over 2 hours) and the plot seems so familar--but that's because many later, inferior films stole from this.Nonetheless, this is a must see.
