The film"s page

Tony is an old and almost finished man who has just spent five years in jail. He has lost his place among the mob. His old friend Jo is nevertheless still loyal to him and proposes him the burglary of a jewelry. This is the chance for Tony to retire with a last exploit. The hold-up is carefully prepared but rival gangsters are watching Tony and his friends. A great classic movie of the French "film noir" which evokes the American classic movie "Asphalt Jungle".
