Mélodie En Sous-Sol

Mélodie En Sous-Sol

Synopsis

In this adaptation of John Trinian’s The Big Grab, Gabin plays godfather to Delon’s rookie gangster in a meticulously planned heist of the Palm Beach casino in Cannes. The rugged Gabin – the brain of the operation – and the diabolically handsome young Delon, who would always credit Gabin as a great influence, form a terrific team in a nail-biting thriller that also comments on the modernisation of 1960s France.
