Bilouaustria's rating of the film Crimson Gold

Astonishing first sequence. Best bank robbery i have seen to date. More suggested than actually shown (most of the action is outside the scope, the sound and the eyes of the third guy - the watchman - made for it). Locked behind the bars with the main characters, the spectator feels he is condemned as well. Unforgettable opening !
