The simpatico creative partnership between auteur Melville and Delon as onscreen emblem of the writer/director’s ethos continued with this elegant and suspenseful crime thriller. Wasting no time after being released from prison, Delon sets his sights on a jewelry robbery in the posh Place Vendôme neighborhood; after taking on escaped con Gian Maria Volontè as a partner, his plans soon come to the attention of policemen past (Yves Montand) and present (Bourvil).
