Well-done French crime film. Very believable set of criminals. I particularly like the fellow who looks like a math professor who's good with a submachinegun

I prefer the film it influenced, Bob le flambeur, but this is still an excellent French noir. Becker achieves a grace and elegance unsurpassed in the crime genre, and Jean Gabin fully embodies his weary gangster character. Charming and humanistic.

Wonderful character study of a gangster flick. It's elegant and moves along at a very relaxed pace. You can't help but like Jean Gabin's Max, who's cool-headed and always seems to know what to do.

The film is quick to establish the mood, but it takes a little time before the central relationships of the film sort themselves out. From there on it's a tightly scripted ride along with Gabin's inner turmoil. Pretty much everything about the film is great, particularly Gabin's performance. If I have one complaint it's that the film feels safe in its greatness, unwilling to take the thematic or narrative risks to make it an all time great.

1950s France must have been overwhelmingly decorous: full of cigarette smoke, three-piece-suits, champagne for lunch, and some of the slickest, most polite gangsters ever. After a night on the lam they retire with striped pajamas, after sex, their makeup and hair are still perfect, after torture, the victim will help you carry your loot. It was probably in black and white too. I certainly hope so. Becker and Gabin certainly make this one of the most attractive gangster films ever.
