Rialto Pictures presents the 1955 French classic, heist thriller Rififi!
Back from the pen, tough guy Jean Servais and some old cronies plan to knock over a jewelry store — the resulting heist a legendary 30-minute sequence without dialogue or music. Blacklisted Hollywood exile Jules Dassin turned a potboiler by milieu specialist Auguste Le Breton into an existential thriller that earned him Cannes’ Best Director prize and set the standard for screen robberies for decades to come.
