We gave it a B+

A slip of a plot — a sympathetic driver (Belmondo) helps a condemned gangster (Ventura) and his sons flee from Milan to Paris — is buffed by French filmmaker Claude Sautet (Céser et Rosalie) and cinematographer Ghislain Cloquet into a riveting actioner without cliché or sentimentality in Classe Tous Risques. The Criterion EXTRAS include a wise, affectionate essay by director Bertrand Tavernier, who calls Classe ”as revolutionary as Breathless.” B+
