I never thought I'd see this released on BD.

How is this in terms of Jules Dassin's other films?

I really enjoyed Rififi and I consider it one of the best, if not the best, film about heists. I have also seen The Naked City, which I enjoyed, and Night and the City, which I hated.

I think if you enjoyed Rififi, you will enjoy this. It has more comic elements than Rififi, and is less dark overall, but the heist scene is similarly tense.

I'm a huge fan of Dassin and thought this was a complete swing and a miss.

so excited about this one coming to bd.
such an intelligent, witty throwback to the days when real artists made real films.

I have to say I am not a big fan of this. IMHO Mercouri and Schell have ZERO chemistry together and their relationship is a key element. The tone should be light and breezy and these two are dull and clunky (although of course they have been fine in other films). Also, the whole plotting of the heist had been logical and precise, and then at the end we get this ludicrous twist:
[Show spoiler]Simpson suddenly is found to have exceptional strength? Apologies to Peter Ustinov, but it looks as if the heaviest thing he lifts is a cafeteria tray.
The heist itself is interesting but not worth the trouble.

Thanks for the opinions, guys.

It sounds like a movie worth seeing, but not necessarily worth the trouble of blind buying. I'll try to find a copy before I commit to a purchase.

It looks like an oddball kind of movie, but I do enjoy heist movies, especially in exotic locales, so I'd like to see this one day. It's available to rent on Vudu, so I might just go that route

anyone know if subtitles are planned? Old soundtracks benefit so much and the hearing impaired and those to whom English is not their first language need them too.
