Plot Summary

Charles (Jean Gabin), a sixtyish career criminal fresh out of jail, rejects his wife's plan for a quiet life of bourgeois respectability. He enlists a former cellmate, Francis (Alain Delon), to assist him in pulling off one final score, a carefully planned assault on the vault of a Cannes casino. Bad luck and Francis's lack of professionalism set the caper maddeningly askew, and the stolen cash resurfaces in an unexpected manner. Written by Michael Krugman

Edit
Trivia Charles' house appears to be the last single one left between the new high-rise buildings. His wife was offered 15 Mill. Frs. to tear it down and make room for a new skyscraper. In fact the house is still standing with no more high-rise buildings around but those that are in shown in the film. See more »
Goofs The place where Francis emerges on the roof is not backstage, but right above Palm Beach's main entrance. He is climbing out of a wooden box they placed there. See more »
