Name of French Film?
February 5, 2011 3:42 AM   Subscribe

Does anyone know the name of a recent French movie( well maybe 2005) about three gangsters in Paris and a girl who gets involved with them...they ask her to video a heist for them then she becomes one of the gang. They go to Cannes, etc and have a gangsters holiday, then the big robbery they have planned goes wrong at the end (where she dresses as a high class prostitute in a blonde wig) but she ends up in a large apartment by the sea America with a piano full of bank notes

Are you sure are aren't somehow thinking of Nikita, possibly conflated with the plot of the American remake with Bridget Fonda (Point of No Return)?

Ugghh I watched this two weeks ago. I think it's something along the lines of "one of them" or "bad guys." I'll keep raking my brain.

Wikipedia has a list of French films by year that might prove helpful.

Femme Fatale?

I remember the movie, I think it could be Ni pour, ni contre (bien au contraire), but I'm not 100% sure.

I think antoine has it. It was released in the US as Not For or Against....

The only detail of yours that seems off is the piano -- are you sure it's not an orange couch with money stuffed into the cushions?

Here are some photos from the film.
