Jules Dassin directed this landmark caper film about the planning and execution of a nighttime robbery at a swanky English jewelry shop in the Rue de Rivoli. The story concerns a collection of thieves who band together to commit a seemingly impossible robbery. The set piece of the film is an intricate 28-minute sequence that depicts the robbery in detail — all filmed silently without dialogue or music. After the success of the robbery, the gang barely has time to celebrate when a rival gangster, Pierre Gruuter, decides that he wants a cut of the take. (allmovie)
