Based on the novel 'Du Rififi Chez Les Hommes' by Auguste LeBreten, this is the film that established the benchmark for all heist movies. RIFIFI won director Jules Dassin the best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival when it was originally released in 1955. Now being reissued with a sparkling new print, it is still regarded as one of the greatest films of the genre.
The story centres on four jewel thieves who meticulously plan a daring robbery. Everything looks set to go off without a hitch but it only takes one error of judgement to bring the whole plan crashing down...
