Majorly stylish, Bob le Flambeur is a cool homage to American gangster films and the presage to French New Wave mode of seeing.

This light, breezy 1955 heist film is probably the least characteristic movie Jean-Pierre Melville ever made.
Lagging direction, so-so thesping and usual femme and lowdown aspects of this type production make this an ordinary entry.
A wonderful movie with all the formal beauty, finesse and treacherous allure of green baize.
Its realism is not the reality of life, but of the kind of movies that give shape to the disordered lives of the people who watch movies.
Bob le Flambeur (1955) has a good claim to be the first film of the French New Wave.
One of the most curious yet pleasing of all the great French film noirs.
Melville and his characters were wont to mutter sour-sweet epigrams about trust and loyalty, like "If there are two of you, one will betray." ... Nobody's perfect; this curtain line is. The lasting beauty is plain to see.
Jean-Pierre Melville's sly and svelte human comedy strikes an articulate cinephiliac give-and-take
An overlooked masterpiece.
Melville at his best
At once a charming entertainment, a resonant character study, an ironic morality tale, and a bittersweet celebration of Montmartre.
a generally absorbing and sometimes funny look at the capricious nature of Luck
The ending is pure comedy - adore!
another genius film directed by melville. the cast, camera work, and script were near perfect and the story was inventive and compelling. i was ready to give this a perfect score and declare it one of my favorite films of all time until an unfortunate final 5 minutes of the film that completely spit in the face of logic and common sense, but when an entire film is near flawless and the climax doesnt work out well the film still deserves respect. despite the empty ending this is a wonderful and excellent film.
another great heist film from jean pierre melville, once again showing his love for american noir and gangster movies. the title character is a kind, aging thief and degenerate gambler who plans one last elaborate job, the robbery of the deauville casino. of course everything doesn't go off as planned. an important precursor of french new wave and a very obvious influence on ocean's eleven. remade by neil jordan as the good thief, 2003
I liked THE GOOD THIEF more.
