A good old French Polar
7 December 1998 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

What I liked best was the sound track, with echoes from Puccini's Gianni Scicci. The plot is also an acceptable average, which also reminds of "Rien ne va plus" from Claude Chabrol, with the same Michel Serrault playing the role of a modest ordinary crook, trying his best to turn his boring life into an affordable extraordinary adventure.
