Belmondo is funny
30 March 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Filmed in Montréal, this movie tells the story of three friendly bandits who steal a bank. Jean-Paul Belmondo is funny as the leader of the trio. I have seen this movie 5 or 6 times and never get tired of it. It's still funny after all that time. Look for cameos by French-Canadian actors Yvan Ponton, Guy Provost, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, Francis Reddy and Yves Jacques.

7 out 10.
