Set against the glitzy backdrop of the French Riviera, aging gambler Bob Montagnet is about to gamble it all on the casino heist of a lifetime; a spectatcular sleight of hand--two heists, one real, one not, but which is which? Under the watchful eye of Roger, a policeman who would as soon save his longtime opponent as arrest him, Montagnet assembles a team that consists of partners Paulo and Raoul, technical mastermind Vladimer, former-drug-dealer-turned-informant Said, Anne, a young Eastern girl Montagnet rescued from prostitution, and the perfect complement to a double theft--identical twins Albert and Bertram.

The whole movie, man this was good.. Nolte, the girl and the whole movie - all perfect.. This movie is done with style, good taste and imagination. This is not a basic average Hollywood-movie - it's a great mixture of the best stuff from both American and European movies, still without any over-dramatizing you see in independent films. The acting and the casting is just fantastic, all lead roles pull of something they might never repeat. -AND the movie really has the moods; spectacular atmosphere throughout the movie. Since this movie I've been searching for all Nolte-movies I haven't seen.. Really, I say no more, you just make sure you see this one! Totally amazing..
