a caper story
13 June 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Jean Gabin and Robert Stack. the "60's atmosphere. a decent story, predictable.caper story, with classic ingredients. friendship, business, gray guys and bad guys, a bank. nothing surprising. and, maybe, nothing serious. but it is one of films remembering a recipe. not in brilliant manner. but decent. and, in essence, that is the most significant thing.
