Slack French crime piece
26 December 2003 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

The French cops and robbers pieces of the fifties were pretty slack affairs until TOUCHEZ PAS LE GRISBI raised the bar.

This one is only really interesting for the presence of Von Stroheim at the fag end of his career,showing up belatedly as a crime Czar.

Film making is routine despite what looks like an adequate budget.
