Director: Jules Dassin
Original Release: 1955
Choice: My Wife's
My Overall Rating: 3 stars out of 5
Parts of the story are riveting: the heist, of course, and also the final act involving the abduction of a child. The character development that fills the rest of the time is less compelling. The men are all rotten. The women are all blameless and treated horribly. Black-and-white footage of 1950s Paris is quite satisfying.
