Storyline

London, 1960. Laura Quinn is the lone female executive at London Diamond Corporation. She is frustrated as her talents are rarely acknowledged and her less-experienced male co-workers are promoted ahead of her. She is shocked, but intrigued, when the mild-mannered night janitor, Mr. Hobbs, approaches her with a daring but simple plan to steal a handful of diamonds from the vault. Laura agrees to help, but she is soon in over her head. And it is not long before insurance investigator Mr. Finch has his eyes on her. Written by L. Hamre

Goofs

When an insurer pays a loss claim the insurer receives title to the lost item. The insured accepts the item's value in cash in place of the item, and in turn transfer title to the insurer. The insurer, effect, the "purchases" the lost item, so if the item is later recovered it belong to the insurer. Although Hobbs's goal was to ruin Sinclair, as soon as the diamonds were recovered Sinclair would have been made whole again, foiling Hobbs's intention. See more »

Nice Retro Caper movie
28 April 2008 | by inteleartsSee all my reviews

Flawless is a charming, tense, and nicely executed caper movie.

I had absolutely no idea how the robbery was done until the revelation: and, like most of us, I have watched enough heist movies to quickly go "Yup, got it!", more often than not, but not here.

Excellent understated performances from Demi Moore and Michael Caine, especially in the small facial gestures when stressed and so on. The settings etc; all add to a nice retro feel. You really get a sense that they tried hard to build the 1960s into this - very buttoned-down, very regimented, a very male world.

One of the major attractions for us was that the sense of pace builds slowly - and compared to the Bank Job I have to say this is the better movie.

All in all a clever, entertaining film, with a good script and very nice central performances, and even a human message.

Definitely recommended
