In their own words and with unprecedented access, the most successful jewel thieves of all time take you into their world: the post-Milosevic Balkans, the modern diamond trade and a 21st Century crime gang. But as the thieves brazenly commit their crimes across the world - Europe, Asia and The U.A.E. - Interpol and global police forces are tightening their grip. As many of the criminals responsible for are caught and extradited, this film asks: Is this the end of the Pink Panthers?Written by
A missing narrative of this movie is that investigative reporter and associate producer Jovo Martinovic is now rotting in a Montenegrin jail awaiting 'trial' for his part in producing it. His exposes on characters, past and present, have rattled those in Montenegrin power, leading to a 'sting' as the perfect ruse for arresting and keeping him in isolation for what amounts to just doing his job. THAT story would make a much fitter ending - don't rattle the establishment, especially if it has ties to the very people it's not supposed to.
