When watching this movie I was sitting on the edge of my seat, especially during the last 10 minutes. Despite the movie being in french, and having a good 45 minutes being completely silent. I highly enjoyed watching Rififi, I would say that I could easily sit down and re-watch this movie again and again and pick up new meaning to certain parts and even maybe some of the foreshadowing that was going on.
The part that was the most interesting was either the actual heist, obviously, but I really found the last 2 minutes of the film to be the most edge gripping and how my heart started hammering and I was unable to sit still. All yo unwanted was for the child to get home to his mother, the money to get back safely. Only one of those happened.
Another part that got my heart hammering was when they were getting ready to break into the safe, but first they needed to silence the alarm system. This was nerve racking because of the fact that there are police that roam around out on the streets that could possibly put the whole heist on hold if they were to second question anything.
