Part of Heist!
Charlie Croker (Michael Caine) is out of jail and on the make with an ingenious plan for the heist of the century. Aided and abetted by top criminal mastermind Mr Bridger (Noel Coward), Charlie sets off with an ace team of villains and three very special Mini Coopers to lift $4,000,000 from under the noses of the Turin Polizei. The trouble is, with the cops and the Mafia on his tail, Charlie finds that grabbing the money is kid’s stuff compared to getting away with it.
This action-packed comedy drama is an all-time cult classic of the ‘60s — with the craziest car chase in movie history and an incredible cliffhanger finale. THE ITALIAN JOB is the caper movie to beat them all.
“Is there a film — certainly a British film — that delivers a greater infusion of pure joy than THE ITALIAN JOB?” —Robert Colvile, The Telegraph “...A whopping good third-act mini-car chase, one which will inevitably compared to the daredevil hill vaulting of BULLITT, the sort of sequence an audience walks out talking about and continues to talk about.” —John Mahoney, Hollywood Reporter “Apart from Caine's wonderfully breezy central character — blond, quite beautiful, flitting from high society to low villainy — THE ITALIAN JOB is certainly the high watermark of British camp, with Troy Kennedy Martin's script composed of equal parts innuendo and waspish one-liners.” —Pat Reid, Empire
