Amazing story. The middle of the movie, when the unexpected project starts to fall into place, was very exciting.
Too bad about the romance which was formulaic but that is a small quibble. Francois Cluzet is excellent as a small time con man faced with a scam not of his own making.

Interesting French film based on a true story. I wanted to know what happened regarding the project after the credits appear, but I am still left guessing.
