Just a great movie...
17 April 2001 | by (Hradec Králové, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

I like French movies generally, but this one is really great! The plot is unique enough, you just wonder, what`s going on next. Belmondo (plays the main character) is one of my most favourite actors at all. He`s funny and sympathique. And Kim Cattrall is very, very sexy... There are movies I can see over and over. Hold-Up is one of them!
