Yes Mijanou Bardot is BB's younger sister .No,she does not resemble that much her famous sibling.And she has only four lines (maybe five) to say.Her part is however important in the plot since her papa carries millions in his car as if they were cabbages for the market.And Mijanou's boyfriend (Pierre Vaneck)and his pal (Roger Hanin) attack the car to latch on to the dough;but do not panic,they use chloroform,in the good old-fashioned way.How naive and mindless these guys are:they do not even wear any masks or hoods! That was Michel Deville 's first film , who teamed up with Charles Gérard ,an actor who directed low budget films noirs like this one.The latter sank into oblivion,but the former made critically-acclaimed works afterward.
