Classe Tous Risques

France | 1960 | 110 Minutes | Claude Sautet

Abel Davos (the gloriously hangdog Lino Ventura) is a wanted French gangster ready to end his exile in Italy. He sends his family ahead, planning one last job to cover expenses. Only his old cronies aren't thrilled to see him, and his sole ally is an untested kid played by Jean-Paul Belmondo (Breathless). The title means "Consider All Risks," but you're taking no chances with the movie the New York Times called "a missing piece of film history ... a link between the great postwar policiers and the brooding 1960s gangster dramas of Jean-Pierre Melville."
