A remake of this has been planend for quite some time, and, if it ever gets made, it could be good, but regardless, do yourself a favor and check this one out. His performance is first rate, but Mohner and the rest of the cast are equally good, including Drassin himself as Cesar, an Italian safe-cracker who inadvertently causes the gangs ultimate downfall. Back-story isn’t a major concern here. The rest of the story is fine, a far as film noirs go. Stupid, because before this character wasn’t THAT stupid. The Movies Challenge.
Imagine what happen if director tried to pull same thing today. There’s no reason to remake this masterpiece other than money. The suspense then increases further when it becomes clear that the time available to the gang is very close to running out. MOscarbradley 15 August Laslty, I would like to say that I support this fresh idea of a film where not only one side wins, and that side doesn’t always have to be the good one. What helps make this one one of the more notable is of course the heist itself, which plays out wordlessly in real time, and the demeanor of the lead. But Rififi isn’t just this one scene – every scene in the film is as masterfully put together, and as a whole, the film is not only taught with suspense, plot and character, but an adroitly told moral tale that set the scene for film noire for years to come.
In the old film noir, which evolved from the gangster films of the thirties, the usual motto, following the old Hollywood “code,” was “Crime Doesn’t Pay,” with every criminal having to pay for his or her crime before the end of the movie. I find it bit strange that Rififi only cost two hundred thousand dollars to make because it seem cost a lot more since it is fantastic motion picture. The heist is only one component of this adventure. Actually rather overrated, lacking the tension, profundity, and vivid characterisation of similar films.
It’s not only easy to see why this is held as a classic, it’s also easy to see why it’s among the top on the IMDb: Why ridifi the world would I watch this over any other of the hundreds of film noirs that were made in the world?
Everything in it works, even down to the great music of George Auric. Spartacus may have been the one which broke down the infamous blacklist, but in my opinion Rififi was the film that began to break apart the unbreakable Hollywood blacklist.

Chris Weber Super Reviewer. Sandwiched between two great American heist flicks — John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing — French writer-director Jules Dassin’s Rififi employs the three-act structure that works well for any film of this nature.

Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: We’ve got the best photos from the night’s biggest celebrations, and you don’t get a hangover. Rififi is the number one film in an arsenal of thirty plus films for director, Jules Dassin. They not observing the apartment after it so Tony can go after a while which was the same day inside to take the jewels. As far as I am concerned, this film noir had two totally different things going for it as opposed to the film noirs I am used to viewing: I think it’s one of the greatest heist films of all time, period.
In another important scene the specialist in safes Cesar gave directly after the robbery as a present a diamond ring which was a part of the robbery a Woman which was working for Louis Grutter in a night bar.
You can see Dassin in Rififi, he played safe cracker.
The rest of the story is fine, a far as film noirs go. Bogart would think twice before crossing this guy. Also, Quentin Tarantino whose debut feature Reservoir Dogs was inspired by this film. What would any crime movie be without colorful characters that form our core crew.

There are no femme fatals in this one though. Too many times to mention.
View All Critic Reviews Not many films score 10 out of 10 but this does and also gets a gold star for effort!! All of this leads up to one subtitle the tensest scenes in all cinema; the heist itself. They are not searching for it!
But it’s also very good. My vote is ten. After considering Jo’s proposal, Tony decides not to take part and instead tracks down his ex-girlfriend Mado Marie Riifi who, in his absence, has taken up with Pierre Grutter Marcel Lupovici a rival gangster and nightclub owner.
The frank interested stare at the action as it proceeds. There’s a brilliant 9155 between Servais and Drassin towards the end of the movie which is short but unforgettable.
