And ninety minutes of good entertainment

I expected worse from this unknown Italian heist movie from the sixties. Yes folks, it is a typically 60's product, set at first on the french Riviera, where a billionaire hires a professional thief to rob the great Mogol jewel diamond, in Rome, where it is heavily guarded.

The almost entire movie focuses on the preparation and heist itself. We of course think of two Jules Dassin's masterpieces: RIFIFI and TOPKAPI. When we see our thieves testing the alarm system on a safe, the same kind of the one they will have to deal with further in the story. And during the robbery itself, there is no talk at all between our leads. Like in RIFIFI, remember... It is not a noir feature as RIFIFI, but with a little lightness and humor. Like the sequence where the robbers, when leaving the safe room they cracked, answer to a phone ringing where a guard asks to one of his colleagues - he thinks on his duty and not tie up by the hoods - to help him with his crosswords enigma: how many words for those who are as silent as cats where they get away, in seven words. The thief who takes the phone and answers to the question, impersonating the guard tied up, says: ROBBERS. Ah Ah Ah Ah. Very funny isn't it?

The very ending is exquisite, in the perfect mood for this era.
