Springtime in Paris
Filmfest 2006

Fiftysomething thief Georges has just served five years in prison and would rather not go back. But when suave young Pierrot suggests a lucrative can‘t-miss job, they combine forces to steal a gem-bedecked necklace from the safe in a private mansion. But matters grow complex when the insurance company leans on the police, the police lean on the fence, the jeweler is reluctant to split the proceeds, bullets are fired, women are seduced and the wrong people make impromptu visits to the cops... Dark humor and modern romance parse the proceedings from first frame to last. Breezy jazz score is just right. Variety, 28 Feb 2006
