Bob the Gambler has decided to give up his business in order to enjoy his hobby: gambling. However, he cannot refuse one last job proposed by a friend: to take part in an amazing raid on the Deauville casino. But that day, seeing the gaming rooms, Bob is riveted by a gambling table where he wins in an unabashed fashion, and he forgets about his role in the well-planned hold-up. Consequently, he ends up causing both himself and his accomplices to be arrested by the police.

    Washington Post Stephen Hunter

    Great picture? No. Cool picture? Oui. Not as good, I must say, as the sort of thing we moron yanks were doing on our own over here – "D.O.A." is much better.

    New York Daily News Jack Mathews

    Looks a lot like 1950s American gangster films -- particularly, John Huston's "The Asphalt Jungle" -- but it's decidedly French in its sexual candor and moral laissez-faire.

    Variety

    Lacks the suspense, characterization and deft direction of the predecessor "Rififi."
