“Unique and unbelievable yet totally true.” –The Observer

“A breath of fresh air, far above the usual action film Hollywood keeps churning out with pointless abandon.” – The Observer

“One of those strange footnotes in history that deserves the big-screen treatment.” – The Guardian

A wonderfully inventive and fast-paced comic heist movie starring Mark Strong and Vera Farmiga, based on the true story of a group of Jewish friends and former Resistance members who set out to rob a bank. Set in Communist Romania in 1958, as a tide of anti-Semitism see Jews demoted or dismissed from their posts, the friends decide to retaliate by staging a breathtaking robbery, designed to look like a movie shoot. Full of charm and intriguing plot twists, with winning performances from a talented cast of familiar British actors.
