The Lookout (French: Le guetteur, Italian: Il cecchino) is a French-Belgian-Italian crime film from 2012, directed by Michele Placido and starring Daniel Auteuil and Mathieu Kassovitz. It marked Placido's directorial debut outside Italy, as a result of the French box office success of his 2010 film Angel of Evil.
A Parisian police squad, laying in wait for a group of bank robbers after a tip-off, is attacked by a sniper on a roof top when the robbers come out from the bank. Several policemen are killed and the robbers manage to escape. Chief Inspector Mattei, who led the police squad, tries to identify the sniper and interrogates a possible suspect, while the wounded robbers are treated in the countryside by a corrupt doctor who turns out to be a serial killer.
