aka: Hands Off the LootFrance 1954, 94 minutesDir. Jacques BeckerIn French with English subtitlesRating: [M] Genres: Foreign Cinema, Classics / Film Noir, Gangsters
Feat. Jean Gabin, René Dary, Jeanne Moreau
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.
