Following a five year prison sentence, a burglar is tempted to return to a life of crime, eventually succumbing to take part in a jewel heist where in its aftermath things inevitably head south. Jules Dassin's Rififi is a tough, pristine crime thriller headlined by a stoic performance from Jean Servais and punctuated by many unforgettable scenes including the silent burgalry sequence, the fate of the Italian safe cracker, and final death march.
