Based on Richard Stark's Parker novel "The Score", this is a taut French crime movie reminiscent of Claude Sautet's early work, J.P.Melville or José Giovanni. The Parker character (Michel Constantin) is not developed as such, but is even better: just a bleak, meticulous professional who's heading a commando-like heist of a whole French mining during the night. One sub-plot in the book is developed to good effect: one of the telephone operators (Irene Tunc), bored and sexy, strikes up a friendship with one of the hoods and leaves with him.
