Le casse

Henri Verneuil France, 1971

Scout Tafoya's rating of the film The Burglars

It's reeeeeeeal lousy filmmaking, except for those sublime tributes to Vampyr and Seven Chances. As a showcase for Belmondo as Keaton/Lloyd, the most fun-loving of the new-wave icons, it's very enjoyable. If only Verneuil asked him to do more than jump around and be a very good sport.
