A riveting edge-of-the-seat thriller from French master Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Samouraï), capturing the cool charm of 70s Paris, Le Cercle Rouge is a quintessential crime caper considered a "classic cornerstone of the heist genre from a master of the nouvelle vague." David Parkinson, Empire Magazine.

Reformed French criminal Corey (Alain Delon, Le Samouraï) is dragged back into the seedy underworld after a chance encounter with escaped murderer Vogel (Gian Maria VolontŽA Fistful of Dollars). Joined by the mysterious Jansen (Yves Montand, Jean de Florette), a former policeman with a chequered past, they plot a complex jewellery heist involving a wealthy mob boss. With Police Commissioner Mattei (AndrŽ Bourvil, The Longest Day) on their case, he is determined to not only track down Vogel, but bust open the entire operation.
