Synopsis

After bungling a job in London, Albert, an international thief, masterminds a plan to rob a Geneva bank of 7 tons of gold. Assisted by the seductive Giorgia, who works from within the bank, and six other accomplices, Albert sets himself up in an expensive hotel with a battery of electronic devices to supervise the operation. Posing as a street-repair crew, the six accomplices tunnel their way into the city's water mains and, guided by a radar signalling device left by Giorgia in a safe-deposit box, swim to a spot beneath the bank vault. Albert, aided by a closed-circuit television camera hidden in the bank, steers his men by walkie-talkies to the vault. After the gold has been disguised as brass and shipped to Rome, Albert tries to doublecross his accomplices by notifying the police that the men are carrying fake passports; Giorgia, in turn, attempts to doublecross Albert while they are travelling to Rome by train. Both schemes backfire, however, and the eight thieves arrive in Rome to split the loot. Before they can do so, the truck carrying the gold crashes and scatters its contents on the street pavement. Frustrated but undaunted, the group begin making plans to rob the largest bank in Rome.

Quotes

Trivia

It was illegal to film a bank robbery in Switzerland, so director Marco Vicario used a fake script when shooting in front of "Credit Suisse" in Geneva.
