Attractive Italian/Spanish co-production about a bank robbery , filled with intrigue , suspense , humor and plot twists
26 September 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

In this caper movie there are lots of bonafide scenes , comedy , action , full of sci-fi gimmicks , tongue-in-cheek and twisted intrigue . Astounding film about a heist with pretty humor and noisy action . The film talks a hold-up to a luxurious bank carried out by a motley group (Gastone Moschin , Gabriele Tinti , Giampiero Albertini , Dario De Grassi , Maurice Poli , Manuel Zarzo) led by the cunning Professor Albert (Philippe Leroy) and the knockout Giorgia (Rossana Podestà). They walk, they talk, they crawl on their bellies into bank vaults . They are pursued by policemen and while happen several betrayals , twists and turns .

From the beginning until ending the good mood and humor is continued . The plot is very amusing and the final has got an extraordinary surprise . This fun flick displays suspense , giggles , slick and not-so-slick criminals , gorgeous dames and results to be very bemusing . Delightful and enjoyable are the perfect words to describe this film . One of the best intrigue/caper movies ever made along with ¨Rififi¨ by Mario Monicelli and ¨Topkapi¨ by Jules Dassin . The highlight and great climax , of course , is the heist which is developed with imposing tension and intrigue . This picture along with ¨Topkapi¨ created during the 60s and forward an authentic genre . The robbing has been imitated thousand times in European films as well as American movies (Mission impossible). Actors' interpretations are excellent , as Philippe Leroy is magnificent as Le Professeu , José Suárez as Bank manager is top-notch and specially Rossana Podesta is a wow . Support cast is frankly well including Italian players as Gastone Moschin , Gabriele Tinti , Giampiero Albertini , Maurice Poli and Spanish ones as Juan Luis Galiardo and Manuel Zarzo .

Atmospheric cinematography by Ennio Guarnieri from nice color 16mm print and shooting in front of "Credit Suisse" in Geneva , Canton de Genève, Switzerland and Lazio , Rome . Catching and original musical score by Armando Trovajoli . The picture was well directed by Marco Vicario (Rossana Podesta's husband) . Vicario was a good filmmaker who wrote/produced/directed several comedies as "Paolo the Hot" , "The Swinging Confessors" , ¨Homo Eroticus¨ , "Erotomania" , "The Persian Lamb Coat" , among others . This cheerful motion picture attained a lot of success and originated copies , rip offs and awful imitations . Followed by a sequel : "Seven Golden Men Strike Again" or "Marco Vicario's Seven Golden Men Strike Again!" that is also filled with cool sci-fi gadgets , including flying jetpacks . This fast moving , intrigue thriller yarn will appeal to comedy enthusiasts and robbery genre fans . Rating : Above average . Well worth watching .
