This Jean Delannoy/Henri Jeanson collaboration is in the same ballpark as Touchez-pas le grisbi inasmuch as it stresses the 'gentlemanly' or 'civilized' aspect of the caper and they don't come much more civilized than 'gentleman's gentleman' Leonard (Paul Meurisse), who would probably feel naked without a bowler and umbrella - he even sports spats for God's sake - and combines his duties as valet to Noel Roquevert's avocat with masterminding a heist which involves the selection and training of a suitable team without breaking sweat. It's all very entertaining and Genvieve Page is along to provide a love-hate cop-villain relationship and by and large a good time is had by all.
