Sans arme, ni violence, mais avec panache. Mais un arnaqueur, quel que soit son talent, finit toujours par trouver plus fort que lui. Une seule chose est sûre : à la fin de la partie, il y a toujours un pigeon...

Enter Jean Reno as Dubrreuil, or is he? They are also being chased by top police woman Julia who is a careerist crime buster, or is she? And femme fattalle Garance who is a sweet little French flibbertigibbet- or is she? You have to keep guessing as they go from one con to the next it is often difficult to work out who is playing who. You also never get to decide who the good guys and we even have an English police boss - or is he? Well yes he actually is English but can he trust his own men, well you are going to have to watch it to find out.
As mentioned this oozes style the music is a bit of a conundrum though as it verges almost on sixties parody akin to The Pink Panther at some points which I am sure was unintentional, but it gets the care free and louche life style of these high class crooks across very nicely.
It is brilliantly filmed and acted with just the right amount of Gallic self confidence that we Brits either find threatening or endearing - either way we is just jealous. Everyone seems to be effortlessly chic and they all have fab cars from Range Rovers to Convertible Minis (they are a great car I've got one and yes there are some BMW's and Bentleys, and Renaults, but Minis do rock. Enough of the cars, this is Riviera fun and there are some leaps of faith required with the plot if you stop and think. But this is one of those films that is so fast paced that you deliberately over look any plot contrivance and just let it wash over you, this is so close to being five stars really but I am awarding four purely because I am not French - only joking I ruddy loved it and so it gets the lot
In French with stylish sub titles and with a run time of an hour and a half or just over this is a film with more twists than a Chubby Checker song (well the one about twisting any way).
Boasting the kind of blatantly misleading packaging that is their stock in trade (in this case selling it as an action-packed thriller), Metrodome's region-free UK Blu-ray is a sloppy affair that they clearly just rushed out to capitalise on Dujardin's success with The Artist: a decent but far from outstanding 2.35:1 widescreen transfer with occasionally hard to read subtitles, no menu options beyond `Play' (though the film is chaptered) and only a few unrelated trailers as extras.
ELEVEN (2001) or OCEANS TWELVE (2004). To this list we might add some
caper films of the Sixties, including the original OCEAN'S ELEVEN
(1960) or Ronald Neame's GAMBIT (1966) and Peter Collinson's THE
Italian JOB (1969).
All the familiar elements are here: exotic locations in Monaco as well
as the south of France; sun-kissed beaches and luxury hotels; the deep
azure blue of the Mediterranean; iconic cars; and a stellar cast
clearly enjoying themselves with Éric Besnard's script.
The plot is basically irrelevant - suffice to say that small time
conman Cash (Jean Dujardin) pits his wits against Mr. Big Maxime -
Dubreuil (Jean Reno). It seems that Cash's endeavors are doomed to
fail, as Maxime not only has power but wealth and guile as well. Cash
teams up with enthusiastic police officer Julia (Valeria Golino), whose
understanding of the difference between right and wrong appears tenuous
at best, and together they set about trying to place a sting on Maxime.
The action comes to a climax at a luxury seaside hotel, with the
protagonists fighting to secure an attaché case full of expensive and
Also involved in the gallimaufry are Ciarán Hinds and Joe Sheridan as a
pair of native English speakers involved with the French police force;
their grasp of both languages is highly competent - far more so than
their professional abilities.
The effect of watching C$SH is rather like playing with a series of
Chinese boxes; nothing is quite what it seems. The 'good' characters
turn out to be corrupt' the 'bad' characters are not quite as
black-hearted as we might first assume. But director Éric Besnard isn't
much interested in morality; he invites us to admire the ingenuity of
the various cons instituted by the various characters. This is a world
where only the fittest - and the most astute - survive.
A highly enjoyable film, with a series of ingenious shot-structures
(especially the use of split-screen techniques) recalling those days of
the "Swinging Sixties" when everyone seemed so much more carefree than
they do today.
