What's the film about?
Retired school teacher assembles a team of professional thieves and attempts to carry out the perfect crime, stealing 10,000,000 $ in diamonds. A nice entry in the classic heist trend, enhanced by an international cast and shot in Rome, New York and Rio de Janeiro. Giuliano Montaldo is better-known for his historical films (Sacco and Vanzetti), but his genre flicks still have plenty of energy, colour and humour. Well suited soundtrack by Ennio Morricone. "One of the best heist movies" (Roger Ebert).

...if you love the Rififi/Topkapi kind of film, just get your popcorn ready.
