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.Written by

"A Good Thief" is a smart heist flick with Nolte at the center as a rogue with a heart and a habit who is as at home at a casino baccarat table as he is in the streets of Nice. This film is all about Nolte, a babe, and his gang of expert thief assistants who assemble to rip off a Monte Carlo casino under the watchful eye of the cops. This well crafted flick features a cosmopolitan cast, a crisp location shoot on the Riviera, a cleverly convoluted story which gets busy and stays busy, attention to detail seldom seen in movies, and a good musical score. Recommended for anyone into heist flicks but don't expect much else. This tight little drama is all about the heist. (B)
