Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/26/1981
"...One of the more delightful surprises....A very funny, jaunty movie..."
Entertainment Weekly - 04/26/2002
"...Unpredictably plotted and eccentrically edited; it's a wry meditation on male camaraderie..."
Total Film - 01/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "Helping pave the way for the French New Wave was this charming gangster film from Jean-Pierre Melville..."
Uncut - 01/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a terrific character study, not only of the chivalrous gangster planning a casino heist, but of Paris."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2007
"The director tackles his B-movie yarn with plenty of lyricism, throwing in a poetic voiceover and evocative shots of Montmartre."

Product Description:

A compulsive gambler decides to try for the big time when he attempts to rob a heavily guarded casino. Superior progenitor of the "heroic" gangster/failed heist films popularized in America with RESERVOIR DOGS.
