Summary
A twisting, turning tale of four ex-cons who hatch one last glorious robbery in the City of Light. Considered the ultimate heist movie; a melange of suspense, brutality, and dark humor that was an international hit, earned the best director prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and has proven wildly influential on decades of heist thrillers in its wake.
