Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

A Stiffy Named "Rififi"

The word "rififi" is a French, military term meaning "combat zone". Following its frequent use during WW2 it soon became used as slang, referring to a "rumble or conflict amongst men". And, yes, in this here 1955 movie there is certainly plenty of conflict going on. Indeed.

Filmed in b&w - This 63-year-old, low-budget, French crime-drama had its good moments, as well as its not-so-good moments. Personally, I think that there were some really bad choices made in the casting of Rififi's six main characters.

Set in Paris, France - This film's significance in movie-making history marks it as director, Jules Dassin's first foreign film following his blacklisting (and the ruin of his career) in Hollywood.
