THE INCREDIBLE STORY OF A DIAMOND AND ITS CURSE:
137 carats, can you imagine? It's a nice hunk of diamond. Estimated at 40 million euros, for a rock. Can you fathom that?
===
Appearing in 1471, belonging to Charles the Bold, the famous gem is 137 carats. 126 facets, thought to be one of the first diamonds cut in Europe. Certainly one of Christendoms most lovely. Murder and tragedy dot the diamonds history, centerpiece of the Habsburg treasures. From the Mayerling lovers to Empress Sisi, it turned heads, led to strife and death. Pope Alexander VI was fascinated by the jewel said to jinx its owners. They say that eternal stones have a memory. The Florentin has preserved an image, an imprint of every person who has come close.

Good morning, ladies. Excuse me, I'm so sorry. I had son of a wild night. So I just woke up, I open the door. I'm in the hall, the door slams.
-Here's a towel, sir. I'll open it. Which room'?

Oh, excuse me. Sorry to bother you. I had son of a wild night, you know how it is. I was going to the bathroom. I'm in the hallway. The door slams behind me.
-What room?
643.

Can you even speak without lying? Three words, with no lies. Think you're capable?

You stole, sure. Just like the bankers, just like... all those big-mouths on TV.
===
The jewels will be in a reinforced display, specially-designed. Locked behind 2 maximum security
electromagnetic deadbolts. The keys are precision-cut, fitted with electronic chips.
-Can we copy them?
No way. The keys are distinct and can't be forged.
-At the expo, the first key will be with the head of security, in the command post on the 4th floor. To get it, one team will breech the CF' through air ducts. The 2nd key will be kept by Julia Neuville. She's running the sale.
-On her person?
Right. Only option: switch the girl's key for a dummy that night. For that, we need a perfect double,
sight and touch. We need a print of the original. Silicone mold, both sides. And photos.

I love Ivan Attal! But this time, somebody watched too many Ocean's 11's and Bourne movies and decided the world needed one from France. This cast deserved a better story.

Familiar caper theme: cursed diamond, double cross heist, unexpected saw-it-coming alliances, daring robbery and redemption ... but it is French and entertaining.
