Michael Caine at his most likable stars as a con man who orchestrates a plan to steal $4 million worth of gold from a gridlocked Turin from under the noses of the mafia. Also starring Noel Coward and Benny Hill, featuring red, white and blue mini coopers and a theme song that is still the staple of England football fans, The Italian Job is a British institution and couldn't be more English if the DVDs were made out of recycled spitfires. It's the daddy of the British caper movie and is still quoted by students with alarming regularity whenever they've had one too many Shandy Basses. To be honest, the plot is a little thin by the standards of the modern heist movie and the comedy a little too broad in places, but it has such a knockabout charm and swinging 60s chic it's impossible not to l...
