Touchez pas au grisbi Directed by Jacques Becker

Critics reviews

Unlike his counterparts in [Becker’s] earlier films, Gabin’s performance does not rely as much on the perpetual motion of stepping in and out of different interactions so much as it does on the quiet interplay of gesture that constitutes his great familiarity with his settings. It is an extremely relaxed performance, full of the kind of naturalistic detail only someone with Becker’s mind could dream up.

Touchez pas au grisbi, perhaps more than any other of Becker’s works, serves as a meta-narrative about the director, a running commentary on the life and times of the man who made it.
