The Italian Job is quintessentially British, as an aspiration anyway - getting one over on our European cousins during a football match, cheeky car chase, then f*****g it all up but still looking on the bright side and having a cunning plan - and I'm sure almost everyone will know that final bus scene.
Get Carter is a lot darker and I don't think the car park scene would work, nor do I think as many would know it.
You know what's quintessentially British, the word 'quintessentially'.
