  2. christian's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    Fantastic gangster story w/ Jean Gabin as a serial casanova. Such presence and always impeccably costumed.. More than a few shades of what would become Bond, one day.. The music and the general atmosphere and cinematography are top-notch and amazing,

  3. m00njaguar's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    This is the first film by Becker I've seen, there will be more, thanks to MUBI's triple presentation. One of the great gangster films, beautifully shot in s <french Noir style that has hints of New Wave to come. Jean Gabin and Jeane Moreau are excellent, but so is the entire cast

    "Sometimes it is a great joy ministering to an old saint departing into glory. Sometimes it is a great heartbreak." - Jared C. Wilson, The Gospel Coalition

  5. Nick Potter's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    Terrific French gangster film that sets itself apart from the Melville classics of the era by being quite a bit louder without entirely losing the tone and pace.

  6. honovic's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    A under-seen classic in the pantheon of French Film Noir which focuses on cool-personified original gangster, Jean Gabin, as he nears the dream of a comfortable retirement from crime.

  7. Loz Loory's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    3.5 Great to see a film with older men as gangsters. Gabin and his cronies reminded me of my grandfather's generation: sharp dressers, compact body types, imposing commanders of their personal fiefdoms. Plus the unspoken rule that certain business was not to be discussed in front of women. It was a disturbing environment to be in as a child, and I am glad that gender constructs have changed.

  8. Rik ONeal's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    An impossibly sentimental French crime drama with the impossibly handsome Jean Gabin that hits every single beat with a perfect touch. And some of the sweetest harmonica you'll hear in any film.

  9. Zac Weber's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    I'm a sucker for anything with Jeanne Moreau. If you're able to overlook the ugly treatment of women in the film as a relic of the past (or not), there are some lovely sequences filmed in natural light. Becker is quite clever with his use of diegetic sound, and Betty's amazing dress with the extended shoulders stood out amongst a number of incredible wardrobe pieces.

  10. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    The last remnants of sexual potency, male virility, youthful ferocity: watch the gestural juxtaposition between Gabin's movements & the movements of the younger generations. Gabin fondles women's breasts, & the viewers might feel repelled if it weren't unquestionably certain that these gestures are final remnants of possibility, an anticipation of the void. Jacques Becker's great work about the autumn of one's life.

  11. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    1950s France must have been overwhelmingly decorous: full of cigarette smoke, three-piece-suits, champagne for lunch, and some of the slickest, most polite gangsters. After a night on the lam they retire with striped pajamas - after torture, the victim carries your loot. It was probably in black and white too. I certainly hope so. Becker and Gabin certainly make this one of the most attractive gangster films ever.

  13. El Biffo's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    One of the best French Gangster pictures! So much coolness in this I can't fit it all in here, but for starters, Jean Gabin and Lino Ventura. Jeanne Moreau snorting coke and in a burlesque scene. And the record players and jukeboxes!!

  14. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    I saw this film a while back but I thought it was seedy, nasty, brutal...y'know, a perfect noir. Gabin brings presence and glamour. I loved it. It is fun to see a young Moreau with such assurance.

  18. Enrico Gaudenzi's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    Pura follia lamentarsi di Grisbì. Interpretazione, ritmo, regia, luci... però inizia a farsi sentire un certo iato, si avverte l'artificiosità della personaggioi di Gabin (un malavitoso aristocratico). Più corretto ***/ ? Un poco datato?

  20. HSBilly's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    i should say, it is a gorgeos ultra cool gangster movie, i love melville films, but i can't say no to this flick. with the last heist background, and without showing to much info about it, in the opening i didn't even realise they did the last heist before, and that was great. plus lino ventura is creepy here, gotta honest, masterpiece.

  21. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

  22. Log Lady's rating of the film Touchez pas au grisbi

    The epitome of an ultra cool French gangster flick, that doesn't try to copy American film noir, but is a very unique mix of slow pace, great acting (especially Gabin), and an explosive plot.
