An out-of-town heist becomes a nightmare for a crew of French burglars when they mistakenly rob the head of the Chicago mafia. Unaccustomed to the ways of the American underworld, it is not long before they have the mafia, the FBI and a couple of street gangs on their backs as they attempt to make their way back to Paris.

A slickly made and entertaining film
3 May 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

There had not been so much hype in France about this movie (which was surprising considering the people involved), so I walked into the theater with some sort of apprehension. Well, it was surprisingly good! Of course, not a masterpiece. The very realistic location and the black humor make you think immediately of Q. Tarantino's movies, so you could say that it's been done before, but if you take it for what it is (a copy), it's made with craft, not pretentious, not dumb, has a solid script and is extremely well played (hats off to Renaud and to Harvey Keitel, who's never been so hilarious). It mixes with ability the French and the American conceptions of entertainment, and it also includes a few memorable scenes - in fact, it contains all the ingredients of a potential cult movie. There are very worse ways to spend 2 hours.
