Kick-Back Friday: #120


Classe Tous Risques (1960): Rough translation, Weigh All Risks (but released in the United States with the very noirish title, The Big Risk).

The end of the road for Abel Davos (Lino Ventura), a career thief with 2 young sons, is told in a cinematic nexus of hard-boiled noir, existentialism, and lingering ideas of social responsibility. Put that in yer film-class paper.
