Name of French Film?

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

Seen any good movies lately?

2 part question: 1. I used to be a member of a movie site which made recommendations based on your likes and your friends likes and movies of a similar genre, but I've forgotten what it was called. Do you know of a site like that? Maybe I can recover my membership if I can find it again! 2. Can you recommend a social network for the cinema? Preferably one with similar characteristics to the one i used to know, with a good number of European & British, as well as US, content & users.

The role of the director in early french cinema

What did early (1900-1920) french film directors actually do? I get the sense from my research that early film directors in France were more like what one associates with producers nowadays. The "director" chose the script, chose the actors and the budget, and then left the execution to a cameraman who basically filmed everything as if he were recording live theater. This explains how someone like Louis Feuillade could "direct" hundreds of films each year. Is this assumption correct? [more inside]
