Part of Heist!
Alain Delon plays a master thief, fresh out of prison, who crosses paths with a notorious escapee (Gian Maria Volonté) and an alcoholic ex-cop (Yves Montand). The unlikely trio plot a heist against impossible odds — until a relentless inspector and their own pasts seal their fates. Jean-Pierre Melville’s LE CERCLE ROUGE combines honorable antiheroes, coolly atmospheric cinematography, and breathtaking set pieces to create a masterpiece of crime cinema.
