Rififi is an entertaining but dated crime thriller. While gritty (and at times misogynistic), the film lacks in noir feeling. Recommended to anyone that enjoys a good heist film, but don't expect Rififi to be of the same caliber as The Wages of Fear.

The Blu-ray is not as sharp as it should be and is inferior to many Blu-rays of even older films. Everything else about film is 5 star.

Spellbinding period French film noir. Jean Servais is marvelous as 'Tony le Stephanois,' an intense ex-con striving to pull off the last big one. The moral back-story Jules Dassin weaves in, of revenge on the Hollywood figures who 'named names' of alleged Communists to the U.S. House UnAmerican Activities Committee and cost Dassin his career, is pointed without distracting from the drama.

Tony le Stéphanois is a criminal released from prison, and he meets with several of his old friends to plan one last heist that will make them all wealthy. He also meets his former girlfriend who had abandoned him to become the lover of a gangster, Grutter, and he beats her on the back to deliberately leave scars so Grutter would see them. In order to perform the heist, Cesar is brought in from Italy to break into the safe. After very careful and thorough planning, the heist goes through successfully.

But the already angered Grutter has found out what happened, and intends not only to get back at Stephanois, but to retrieve his ill-gotten gains. Then a denouement of kidnapping, torture, and killing starts.

The moral of the movie, of course, is that being a "tough guy" isn't so wonderful after all, and crimes come back to bite with or without the law.

I don't know what I can say about this classic that hasn't already been said. If you're at all interested in film history or international cinema or heist movies, this one is for you. Not only does it have one of the greatest heists in all of film history, it truly is a shining example of the 1950s French film policiers. Do yourself a favor and watch it.

I absolutley love the european film noir movies. In fact, i have found many other european movies that I personally are much better than American movies....more character development, more emotions,,,,,this is a must see.
