Touchez pas au grisbi
Jean Gabin excels as an ageing Parisian gangster planning one last job.
Dir Jacques Becker
With Jean Gabin, Paul Frankeur, Lino Ventura, Jeanne Moreau
Ageing gangster Gabin decides to put together a posse to commit one last robbery before retiring; sadly, yet true to cinematic form, not all his partners-in-crime can be trusted... Becker’s classic crime movie embellishes the generic storyline with plenty of humanising details; the characters are not so much criminals as individuals who happen to pursue their particular brand of happiness through criminal acts.
