The famous heist scene was awesome, but unfortunately the rest of the film couldn't live up to that part. Still a good film though.

Agree that the rest of the film is not up to the level of the wordless heist sequence, but it’s not as far below it as you might expect.I wonder if a short sequence was the inspiration for “The Red Balloon” a year later.
I was really engaged during the whole runtime of the movie. My one gripe with this movie and others from the 50’s is the ending. It seemed like their way of ending movies then is just at a slightly random place in the story.
