(“Le dernier diamant”)France, 2014
Conniving professional safecracker, Simon (Yvan Attal), is currently out of jail on parole, which doesn’t stop him from engaging in some low-level larceny along with his favorite partner-in-crime, Albert (Jean-Francois Stevenin). When the latter gets them on a major job trying to swipe the legendary Florentine diamond — valued in the film at €40 million ($55 million), although in real life it went missing during WWI and has never been found — Simon uses his thieving skills to seduce the beautiful Julia (Bejo), who’s been put in charge of the jewel’s auction following her mother’s mysterious death.
This movie is in French w/English subtitles.
