Nobody can pull of a robbery under the nose of the mafia with as much style as this cockney gent. This British classic, while parts may seem a little dated and silly now, still holds up as a testament to British film and contains one of the cleverest car chases ever seen.
Mixing the luxurious British hotel rooms with the rolling Italian hills this film boasts a delightful range, adding to the exciting adventure that Charlie (Michael Caine) and his colourful group of oddball miscreants embark in when attempting to rob a heavily protected small fortune in the streets if Turin.
Strolling straight out if the slammer into a stolen ambassador's vehicle Caine demands the screen in the confident cockney fashion that he has maintained over the past 45 years, quipping his snarky way through the heist of the century.
Goes to show there's nothing more inconspicuous than a Union Jack formation of Mini Coopers.
