Albert Spaggiari, the infamous man responsible for one of the biggest bank heists of the last century, is at the center of this story. Although the actual robbery is seen briefly, it made the man famous for stealing from an institution not likely to have been robbed.
We come to the story as Vincent Goumard, a free lance journalist makes contact with Spaggiari's men under the pretext of an interview with the notorious bandit, now living in a South American country, not unlike Brazil, but not identified by name. Unknown to Spaggiari, or his associates, Goumard was acting with the police and the idea was to kidnap him and return him to France for justice.
The problem with the film, directed by Jean-Paul Rouve, is that it never makes up its mind whether to be a comedy, or a thriller. Mr. Rouve makes the mistake of other actors in trying to act and direct. Perhaps a better film would have resulted with another man in charge. As an actor, Mr. Rouve does not convince. When all is set and done, nothing new comes out about the caper.
