Product description

Product Description

Heist comedy caper starring Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson, Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie. Middle-aged company man Richard Jones (Brosnan) is all set for retirement - or so he thinks. When he arrives at work for his last day and finds that his pension fund has been stolen through the fraudulent workings of Vincent Kruger (Laurent Lafitte), the man who has recently bought over the company, he enlists the help of his ex-wife Kate (Thompson) to help get it back. The two set off for France with their friends Jerry (Spall) and Penelope (Imrie) who agree to help steal Vincent's bride-to-be's diamond necklace which they feel will fully compensate for the lost funds. Can they track Vincent down and secure their future?

I really like this movie – it's silly, improbable, farcical and poignant in turns, and entirely dedicated to having the viewer enjoy the good time the actors are so obviously having, as they romp through this deliciously engaging soufflé of a plot. Reminiscent of the madcap speeded-up nonsense of Casino Royal, there is a daring jewel heist, a broad swipe at callous corporate takeover mentality and a tender, against-all-odds mature romance.

If you were hoping for “conflict” or some dark, sinister, violence-filled story line, you're out of luck - and this is not the film for you. But if you enjoy beautiful locations, with beautiful principal protagonists and the skilful and deceptively relaxed way they engage us and bring us on board for the ride ... well, this is a “feel good” film, that you can watch more than once, and still find the charm in Pierce Brosnan's cheeky delivery and the beguiling attraction in Emma Thompson's cautious response.

They are terrific together and entirely believable in the history and connection they portray. And with their best friends and neighbours, played by Celia Imrie and Timothy Spall, they have to be on their best comedic toes not to have quite a few scenes stolen by those two.

Spall and Imrie are indeed a revelation to me. I knew some of Celia Imrie's work, but not so much Timothy Spall's and he is so genuine in his character, it's almost unnerving. And they're both very, very funny, and likeable in this, and it truly is a quartet piece: they are more than supporting, they are stellar.

Not just another predictable rom-com. This is a lightweight comedy with a joyfully implausible plot navigated by well-developed characters. It delivers all you'd hope for from the sublime combination of Emma Thompson and Celia Imrie, and that's a pretty tall order.
A quirky, British, middle-aged rom-com, wrapped around a heist movie, with lots of nicely integrated filmic references (making the most of Piers Brosnan's dark past).

Wholly engaging, great fun, and rather clever little movie. Watch when you want a happy and rewarding evening's viewing!

Fun, simple 'British' comedy from a quartet of well established 'thesps' ..... and Pierce Brosnan didn't have to sing either!!
