DJ Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Topkapi" (1964)

Director: Jules Dassin
Rating: 9/10 Stars *********
Topkapi is an awesome/classic jewel thief movie because it was one of the first of its kind (as far as I am aware)! A group professional thieves takes on a the challenge of stealing a valuable knife from one of Turkey's big museums. Along the way they recruit the unlikely but likable Peter Ustinov, and a not so serious adventure begins. Great shots of Istanbul in the 1960's, makes me want to visit.
