Synopsis

Neil Jordan's heist movie (loosely based on Jean-Pierre Melville's 1955 film 'Bob le Flambeur') tells the tale of American ex-pat Bob Montagnet (Nick Nolte) - thief, gambler, and heroin addict - now living on the French Riviera, who seizes the chance to make a fortune and get out of his run of bad-luck. The heist: stealing several rare paintings from a casino in Monte Carlo. The problems: an over-zealous police-chief (Tcheky Karyo); a rogue's gallery of underworld characters; and a prostitute's (Nutsa Kukhianidze) man troubles. What could go wrong?
