SYNOPSISThis is based on the 1966 British caper pic that starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. In this version Harry Dean's (Colin Firth) plan to steal a painting from one of the world's richest men is missing one final component -- the participation of a beautiful woman to act as his gambit. In Nicole, he meets someone who appears to be the perfect candidate, but Harry himself becomes enraptured with her, causing his plan to take a series of wrong turns.
