I would be difficult for me to say enough good things about this movie. The Itallians came make a movie like no one else. This is a very stylistic heist movie. It co-stars the b movie hero, Klaus Kinski. The score was done by Ennio Morricone. What more could you ask for? This is truly outstanding example of the Itallian crime sub-genre. All the elements that make a movie of this type entertaining are present in spades: over the top schemes, gadgets, one-liners, and car chases. I have heard many of Enni Morricone's scores, but the opening piece is one of his best. Over the past few years, Blue Underground re-released some great, obscure movies. Watch this.
