Synopsis

Following his international breakthrough with THE AWFUL DR. ORLOFF, director Jesús Franco delivered a startling crime thriller that pistol-whipped European notions of film noir while lighting the fuse on Uncle Jess' own insane aesthetic. Jean Servais of RIFIFI fame stars in RIFIFI IN THE CITY, a nihilistic trip through a pulp underworld of thugs, snitches, nightclub dames and black-gloved giallo-style murders. The film - which led an impressed Orson Welles to hire Franco as his assistant on CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT - now features an HD scan from the original negative for the first time ever.
