Trivia:
The police escort vehicles featured in the beginning sequence are as follows: a 1965/66 Citroen DS-21 unmarked police sedan, a 1965 Citroen Type H Police van, and a '65 Citroen H delivery van. The Citroen DS-21 sedan, designed by famed industrial designer Flaminio Bertoni, is a particularly noteworthy addition to this movie as its futuristic and aerodynamic signature concept design, along with its innovative technology - the first mass-produced car to feature front disc brakes - caused the DS to be named "the most beautiful car of all times" by Classic and Sports Car Magazine.See more »

Charming, 26 December 2004
Author: kdude12 from Montreal, Canada

A charming adventure comedy. It revolves around good-hearted art forgery and the need to set thing right. The basic plot is rather implausible, but it hardly matters. There is a great chemistry between the primary characters and the story is pleasantly devoid of attributes that would prevent the film from being enjoyed by anybody from 10 years-old and up. The blend of mild suspense, gentle comedy and a bit of romance is not too intellectually provocative, but it makes for great fun. It's a film I can sit down an watch with my teenage daughter, my younger son, my wife and my mother, and everybody has a good time and comes away feeling better than when they sat down.
