The first of two cracking classic 1960s French crime thrillers. As the police close in, a wanted Frenchman assesses his relationship with his estranged family and his former friends.

Lino Ventura is Abel, a Parisian gangster sentenced to death while on the run in Italy, and now pulling off robberies to feed his wife and two children.

Despite the simmering resentment and betrayal, a friendship develops between these two strangers. What a treat.
