This is a great gangster film, adapted from a Auguste Le Breton novel, author of "Rififi" and "The Siciian Clan".
And, more, the main characters are played by great actors: Jean Gabin and Lino Ventura - who was not still a big star, as Marcel Bozzufi and Annie Girardot, who also play in this movie.
The tale of struggle which occurs among a gang of bank robbers. The leader - Jean Gabin - has his young brother who is suspected, by his own henchmen, to be a police informer. And this will be the beginning of the end for the team.
A simple, solid and effective story, fast paced. Not boring at all. No length.
