Sarah Cronin
Electric Sheep

Classe tous risques is a taut, original gangster film told with simplicity and a compelling directness, with bare-bones exposition and a neorealist touch.

A crisp, smart, cynical film about dishonor among thieves.

Sautet's shrugging ambiguity, already piquant, already piercing

A tense tale of dishonour among thieves this is as hard-boiled and flinty as anything Hollywood was making at the time.

Sautet's characteristic restraint lacks the killer snap of Melville at his best, and the impetus rather flags as events proceed.

Romantic codes of honor collide with the unforgiving doom of the gangster thriller with a fascinating ambiguity... in Claude Sautet's lean, tough 1960 crime classic...

The new titles are flavorsome, and the restoration is up to Rialto's previous high standards -- shades of gray with the pale glow of an overcast autumn sky.

Belmondo is the clincher: He's got so much jaunty charisma, the screen can barely contain him.

Claude Sautet's Classe Tous Risques is the kind of French movie that makes you want to throw on your trench coat, light up a cigarette and shoot somebody.

A doozy of a French gangster pic that, in its beautifully refurbished and pithily resubtitled re-release, turns out to be one of the highlights of the 2005 movie year.

Even though the film isn't considered a rule-breaking classic, its straight face holds up quite nicely, thank you.

Doesn't quite rate lost-classic status, but it's done with a great deal of dexterity, intelligence and an appealing end-of-'50s cool.

What we're left with 45 years after Classe's awkwardly timed entrance into French film history are some superbly assured performances and well-drawn characters.

Never wastes a minute of your time, right up to its abrupt ending: this is condensed, intense story-telling that never once loosens its grip.

A sombre, downbeat gem in the hard-bitten tradition of Rififi, it stars Lino Ventura as the big-time gangster fallen on hard times, whose former friends don't want to know

The late Claude Sautet was one of the best, and perhaps the most underappreciated, of the great French directors who came to prominence in the '50s and '60s.
