Edit Cast Complete credited cast: Esther Williams Maria Morales Akim Tamiroff Chato Vasquez Ricardo Montalban Mario Morales John Carroll Jose 'Pepe' Ortega Mary Astor Conchita Fortunio Bonanova Antonio Morales Hugo Haas Maximino Contreras Jean Van Maria Morales, as a child Joey Preston Tony declines. He then learns that his old girlfriend, Mado, took up in his absence with gangster Parisian nightclub owner Pierre Grutter.
Finding Mado working at Grutter's, Tony invites her back to his rundown flat. She is obviously well-kept, and Tony savagely beats her for being so deeply involved with Grutter. Tony changes his mind about the heist; he now accepts on the condition that rather than merely robbing the window, they will take on the more difficult but more lucrative task of robbing the store's safe. The four devise and rehearse an ingenious plan to break into the store and disarm its sophisticated alarm system.
The caper begins with the group chiseling through a cement ceiling from an upstairs flat on a Sunday night. The suspenseful break-in completed, the criminals appear to escape without leaving any trace of their identities.
The heist makes headline news and the four men arrange to fence the loot with a London contact. Meanwhile, Grutter has seen Mado and her injuries, who breaks off their relationship. Tony retrieves it from the couple's apartment and anonymously pays for a splendid funeral for them.
Citing "the rules," Tony ruefully kills him. Meanwhile, seeking to force their adversaries' hand, Grutter's thugs kidnap Jo's five-year-old son Tonio and hold him for ransom. The London fence arrives with the payoff, after which Tony leaves to single-handedly rescue the child by force, advising Jo it is the only way they will see him alive. On the way back to Paris, Tony learns Jo has cracked under the pressure and agreed to meet Grutter at his house with the money.
When he arrives Grutter tells him Tony has already snatched the child and kills Jo. Seconds too late to save his friend, Tony is mortally wounded by Grutter before killing him as he tries to flee with the loot. Bleeding profusely, Tony drives maniacally back to Paris and delivers Tonio home safely before dying at the wheel as police and bystanders close in on him and a suitcase filled with million francs in cash.

The planning is meticulous and brilliant. This sets up the rest of the movie for one of filmmaking's most captivating robbery scenes with an incredibly climatic aftermath. Even though this is a French movie with English subtitles, it was a very easy film to follow based on the actions and emotions of the characters. At first it looked like it was going to be a lot like "The Aspalt Jungle" but went into a completely different direction with a gutch-wrenching segment involving a "minor character" in the plot sorry I won't spoil it.
What I also enjoyed was the energy and charisma of the characters plus using ageless Paris as a backdrop for this noir movie. The nightclub acts in this film were also very unique and entertaining and the jewelry heist was also original, lasting for at least minutes without a single word being spoken. The robbery also used some innovative ideas for accessing the safe and jewels.
Finally, there is an emotionally charged scene near the end with some very original film editing. A nice bonus added on the DVD by Criterion is a interview with director Jules Dassin with very informative and at times humorous antedotes. Of course Dassin was blacklisted from Hollywood and was in France out of work and flat broke.
Fortunately, someone convinced him to make this movie, which was based on a French book and he did it on a shoe-string budget with either has-been actors or unknowns. The rest is history and arguably his best film. Criterion did another splendid job with this production.
If you love post World War II noir movies, you won't be disappointed. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. The classic and possibly the greatest heist movie, directed by Jules Dassin. A film all serious film-buffs should have in their collection.
The Arrow UK DVD release presents a good sharp subtitled print of the film there are no subtitle options on the menu screen. Report abuse. One of the greatest noir films ever , same goes for French film , gangster films , and all films really. The classic heist , getting the team together , the heist , and the aftermath and betrayal. Not one wasted minute and the template for hundreds of lesser films. The heist is one the legendary film sequences apparently often imitated in real life.
The French post war background , where the gangsters probably had Resistance connections unless they had gestapo connections , of course. Hardly any American gangster movies can touch its coat never mind better this. It would be the best film of the year in most years.Directed by Jules Dassin. With Jean Servais, Carl Möhner, Robert Manuel, Janine Darcey. Four men plan a technically perfect crime, but the human element intervenes /10(24).
