I watched the gripping heist procedural Sewers Of Gold yesterday. It’s also known as The Great Riviera Bank Robbery and Dirty Money.
Directed by Francis Megahy and starring Ian McShane, it’s a curious one, as it’s based on a real plot in which a group of French fascist-linked hoods led by one Albert Spaggiari tunnelled into the Société Générale in Nice and broke into hundreds of safety deposit boxes before making off with the world’s then-largest haul. I found myself rooting for them all the way through.
Anyway, here’s Lovejoy’s attempt at a ‘peace symbol’, looking suspiciously like product placement for Mercedes-Benz.
The raid was previously filmed as Les Egouts De Paradis, and then again in 2008 as Sans Arme, Ni Haine, Ni Violence, which is essentially the motto as above.
