Dir. Jacques Becker, France, 1960, 132 min. French w/ English subtitles


Four men in La Santé Prison, staring down the barrel at hard time, decide to execute a prison break and are forced to bring on a fifth member, Claude Gaspard (Marc Michel), when he is assigned to their cell. The particulars of the escape, based on actual events, are rendered in painstaking detail as the five men dream of freedom. The daring escape plan tests their loyalty along with their ingenuity. Becker’s final film is a meticulously rendered drama that seethes with anxiety and suspense.
