Very Sixties in its making - with elements of the Italian Job and the Pink Panther combined - the Brain is silly, slick, and entertaining.
The robbery is colossal - $7 million in used notes from 14 countries all on one train! With an all star international cast headed up by Belmondo and Niven this is a frantic, frenetic, fun-filled take on the caper genre - and it really works - from the prison break to the caper itself and the subsequent chase it's high speed all the way.
Everything just kind of works - a great cast - a very competent director and all in all, it's fun.
The only downside is its very difficult to find and is rarely scheduled.
It has however finally been released in France on a double DVD (Without subs).
If you can find it it's a film to enjoy.
