The presence of Gabin as an Italian patriarch, the class of Delon as revengeful mafioso, the simplicity of Ventura as tenacious cop and one of the mosyt beautiful score in the history of cinema make The Sicilian Clan quintessential French crime movie.

Vittorio Manalese – head of the Sicilian clan, organise the escape of the gangster Roger Sartet, who will help him to make a daring heist. This film brings together genius director, capable to create favorable atmosphere for mixing of spectacle and art, three sacred film legends, who work together (not against each other) and a composer, who has extracted the essence of the cinema in its score. Many consider Henri Verneuil as “the most American among French directors”. And this reach its full meaning, when we watch The Sicilian Clan – adequate budget, clear purposes and careful avoidance of rhythm gaps. All is on display for winning the audience, thirsty for strong emotions, not to miss some erotic (the love scene, shot behind a rock, is simply great!).
