This is based on the true life story of Tony Musulin played in a startlingly vivid performance by François Cluzet - `The Untouchables'. We are taken back to 2008 and meet Tony doing his job of driving an armoured security van. He delivers millions of Euros to banks and other destinations. He works with two other guards who are both found wanting in the life skills department. One Arnaud carries a pet mouse and has to pay for sex - regularly, and he thinks this makes him a `ladies man'. Tony has a thing for that good life and one day wanders into a car auction where he sees a Ferrari Spyder.

He later goes back and bids for it. He lives above his girlfriend's bar and seems to take her very much for granted. Then one day he snaps and decides he is going to rob his own van. The 11.6 in the title refers to the 11.6 million he manages to steal. This is the true story of how and more importantly why he did it.

This is very well made, with great period attention to detail and a very strong supporting cast. There is a lot of getting into the psyche of Tony which is essential if we are to understand where his real motivation comes from, The sound track is quite god too I even spotted `The National' doing `Fake Empire' which was pretty apt for the on screen action. Not though an action fest and not as thrilling as a `thriller' should be and that is how it is billed, but still a very worthwhile watch and kept me hooked for the 102 minute run time - recommended.

This subtitled French-language drama tells a true-life story of a remarkable robbery; one where 11.6 million euros is stolen from an armoured car without blood or brutality. Even more remarkably, the robber then – seemingly – allows the police to find the majority of the money and turns himself in…

I say ‘seemingly’ because the film-makers have chosen to retain the mystery of these events rather than fill in the gaps with fictional ‘what if?’ supposition. So although we see the incidents leading up to the robbery in great detail, and observe the activities and relationships of Toni Musulin, we never get inside his head. The film centres on the many mysteries of the heist and Toni’s weirdly compartmentalised life: where did he get the money for a Ferrari before he did the robbery? Why did he take out several loans before committing the heist? What happened to the missing millions? Why did he turn himself in afterwards instead of completing a clean getaway?
The result is a fascinating film, featuring magnificent performances by the actors playing Toni and his friends and family. Toni dominates the narrative and the screen; he’s always interesting even if we can’t quite figure out what he’s doing or his motivation. The plot gives us hints and suggestions towards a credible explanation for his actions yet leaves the central themes unresolved. Toni is a puzzle, and if you can live with a little bit of uncertainty then the missing information just adds to the intrigue.
However, it's probably a little misleading to call this a 'thriller'. It's certainly not action-adventure, and all the thrills are psychological. We found it compelling, but the lack of resolution might frustrate many.

11.6 provides an enjoyable 100 minutes of extremely polished film-making.

Stylish and well made film that let's the plot tell the story without adding pointless special effects. It's a true story that shows that you can't take the "little man" for granted or he will turn on you just like this guy did. Obviously, it's in French but you loose nothing having to work through subtitles because the pace of the film is unhurried and you get plenty of time to read them. Don't miss it!!!

Well acted and interesting plot. Kept me interested for 102 minutes so that can't be bad. Mr Cluzot is such a good actor and the supporting cast all did incredibly well also.

Not a bad film. Rather enjoyed the "Frenchness" of it. Had humour. Rather abrupt end. It was OK.

I really enjoyed this which is strange for a film whose central character is so unlikeable. It's based on a true story which makes it so fascinating how such a massive heist could be pulled off by just one guy who was also such an oddball. Despite the lead character having little or no redeeming features, it's the performance from Francois Cluzet that makes this so watchable, as well as the supporting cast who also are very memorable.

So it's subtitles, though don't let that put you off. I was looking for a film to stretch the mind a little in terms of the usual Hollywood stuff, and this is a good ol' attempt.

Enjoyed the character, the theme, the plot, and it meanders along at a pace sufficient to enjoy with a bottle of wine/few beers. Would I recommend it - yes, definitely, though not if your looking for Rambo/Terminator type films.
