To Catch a Thief is an Alfred Hitchcock film, released in 1955.
This is my first Hitchcock film since Birds, back in '07.
I dug it in almost every way. The performances were well done. The costumes were wonderful. The setting on the French Riviera in the 1950s was gorgeous. Characters spoke in my two favorite languages throughout.
French was well integrated into the movie. It wasn't used only in scenes here and there to show they were in France. Unless it was the American or British characters speaking to each other or the French characters speaking to the english speakers, the French characters spoke French. Being a French language learner and enthusiast, it was an enjoyable aspect to the film.
The plot revolves around Cary Grant's character, who is a retired professional thief using his experience to catch a notorious jewel thief to clear his own name.
I give this film the Zytroft stamp of approval.
