Storyline

Georges (Eddy Mitchell) and Pierrot (Sagamore Stévenin) are two thiefs working in a team. Their last coup hasn't worked out, but when Georges goes free after five years in prison, Pierrot still manages to persuade him to work together again for a robbery of precious jewellery. The new coup seems to go flawless in the beginning, but soon problems arise, because there are simply too many people involved: Louise, owner of the stolen jewels (Pascale Arbillot), is too attractive for Pierrot to resist, the man from the insurance who gave the tip is getting more and more nervous and the jewel dealers want more than their fair share of the deal.

Quoi, alors?

The most intriguing mystery here is why a title that means "A Springtime in Paris" has been translated as "A Winter in Paris". In either case, the season is completely irrelevant here, so ultimately it's a minor point. Eddy Mitchell is best known as a singer, but has a long film career behind him as well. He is perfect for the kind of minor league crook he plays here ("petit frappe", as a relative of mine says). But he does little more here than look like the type he's playing. The plot here is so vague and slow-moving it's more like one of those art sci-fi films where you never quite know what's up than a crime thriller. When you do start to get some idea of what's going on, it's pretty formulaic and predictable. But not at all interesting.
