The Gangsters / Lock Up Your Spoons

A Feature film by Carlo Rim

Release in France : 27/04/1956

    Synopsis

    In flashback, the audience learns why 104-year-old Amedee (Yves Robert) steals the watch belonging to the town mayor just before expiring. The film develops into a history of the watch-thievery business, told in anecdotal fashion. Constantine plays a Wild West timepiece-rustler who develops a sense of morality which puts him out of business.
