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.

Celebrated French actor -- and deservedly so -- Francois Cluzet takes the lead here as the 50-something world-weary downtrodden security guard with dreams of getting out from under the monotonous repression of a dead-end job with what appears to be one of the world's most dysfunctional security firms. Cluzet is, indeed, a joy to see as Toni Musulin, the real-life social media hero who stole 11.6 million Euros without a shot being fired or anyone hurt. Just look at Cluzet's face and you'll see the weight of years etched deep there, all the dashed hopes, the frustrated ambitions. Unfortunately . . .

Just look at the real Toni Musilin's face and you won't see any such thing. Because he's 20 years younger than Cluzet. And because of that, this French-Serbian ex-electrician who got a job as a security van driver has none, absolutely none, of the implicit emotional baggage so conveniently attached to him here by writer / director Philippe Godeau.

It's as if Godeau, having decided to do the picture, then realised he couldn't get any kind of a handle on the lead character. Best thing, then, to age him 20 years. Who's to know? Certainly not all those daft enough to take this movie at face value. To actually think that what they're seeing is . . . True.

The gratutitous let's-add-on-20-years conceit apart, it's hard to know just what Godeau was trying to do, still less, what he was thinking of. Throughout the film, Musilin is depicted as a sociopathic thug who, when he isn't being stone-faced silent is delivering karate chops to his fellow-workers standing in line in the works canteen. Endearing, huh? There's also the matter of throwing someo e's pet mouse out the van door into the traffic stream. Boy, you just got to love this Musilin guy!

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!!!
