A rare and forgotten gem from Italy

A rather good action yarn from the other side of the Alps. Fast paced and with a good characterization we did not expect from such an Italian crime flick. The story of a petty hoodlum who pulls jewelry store heists, in broad daylight, smashing up the shop windows. He has accomplices for these robberies, but a smart and dedicated cop - Gian Maria Volonte - is determined to catch him. In this purpose, he intends to focus on the gangster's girl friend. Good action sequences, car chases, an Ennio Morricone score, all mixed up and you may feel satisfied with this effective crime movie.

Some locations in France, in Paris to be accurate.

A really good surprise.
