Aro Recommended Touchez Pas au Grisbi

 

aka: Hands Off the Loot
France 1954, 94 minutes
Dir. Jacques Becker
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Classics / Film Noir, Gangsters

 

Aroview: Laid-back though influential French noir chronicling a wealthy, retired racketeer (Gabin) who is pulled back into the life of crime when his friend gets kidnapped and held for a huge ransom.

Dir. Becker steers away from the puffed-up bravado of many of the genre's American counterparts through measured storytelling and a reluctant lead character, perfectly pitched by a world-weary Gabin.
