Delon is a condemned murderer who escapes from prison thanks to the help of Gabin, a Sicilian mobster. Delon and Gabin plan to steal a collection of jewels from an exhibition in Venice, but Gabin's American pal Nazzari suggests instead hijacking the airplane that is to transport the

jewels from Venice to New York City. Gabin arranges for his family (the family that robs together...) to carry out the job, which they do nicely. They all scamper back to Europe with the loot and go into hiding. But when Gabin finds Delon has been sleeping with his daughter-in-law, Demick, he

tries to lure his cohort to Paris so that Delon will get what's coming to him. Delon arrives ahead of schedule and sees one of Gabin's sons, sent to kill Delon, arrested before he can carry out the job. But Gabin is a hardliner and sees that both Delon and Demick are finally rubbed out. After

completing the job himself, Gabin returns home to find the police waiting for him. Although its script is somewhat predictable, THE SICILIAN CLAN is hardly just another gangster picture. The ensemble acting is terrific and the direction tells the story well. This film was one of the biggest

box-office successes ever in France and its English-language version also did well, grossing over $2 million in the US.
