I am a lucky person because I have seen this wonderful movie. Starting from reality, Josè Giovanni turn a sharp, fast and essential movie about relationships between people from different lives, experiences and countries. These men are all working hard together to achieve their goal: steal the money from Societe Generale Bank in Nice (France). The actors are really clever to interprete even details of criminals - thieves and in particular, Francis Huster as Albert Spaggiari. It is also a film about deep friendship at the end when Albert Spaggiari escape from Prosecutor office (downstairs his friend is waiting for him on a motorbike). In real life, Albert Spaggiari jumping out of the Prosecutor office windows landed on the roof of a car parked just below (after a few months, he sent a money cheques to the owner of the car to repay the damages). Brilliant.
