(Henri Verneuil, 1969) · From the initial chords of Ennio Morricone's striking score, The Sicilian Clan descends into the mafioso's world of crime and honor. Master thief Roger Sartet (Delon) is sprung out of prison by Vittorio Manalese (Gabin), a ruthless capo in need of Sartet's expertise. Eyeing a diamond exhibition en route to New York, the two plan an elaborate heist, which includes hijacking an airplane. However, a betrayal sets into motion a tense conflict among the criminals.
