Dassin's enormously influential film combines a seminal heist sequence with key elements of noir. Its impact on American cinema can't be understated. It leaves its American cousins of the same era standing. The broads are breastier, the hoods harder, the mood darker, the tension higher and the plotting at once doom-laden and riddled with ironic twists. And Rififi lives up to its name: 'rough and tumble', as a nightclub diva explains during a raunchy musical interlude.
