After 10 years in prison, ex-safecracker Gino (Alain Delon) is released with help from a dedicated social worker (Jean Gabin). He tries to keep on the straight and narrow, moving to southern France, taking a regular job, and beginning a romance with a beautiful girl (Mimsy Farmer). But with a cop (Michel Bouquet) from his past harrassing him, and his old gang planning a bank job, Gino realizes he can't escape his former life. Gripping Gallic crime also stars Gérard Depardieu, in an early role. 98 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: French; Subtitles: English; audio commentary. In French with English subtitles.
