The family that thieves together brings all the laughs in this delightfully madcap caper comedy. Introverted computer scientist Carole and charming con artist Caroline could not be more different, but these half sisters are bonded through their father, Patrick—a man they’ve never met due to the fact that he’s an international art thief at the top of Interpol's lists. But after Patrick is betrayed by his partner in crime (pun intended) and nearly killed, he decides to bring his daughters together to pull off one final heist: steal a Stradivarius violin worth 15 million euros. French superstar Jean Reno (Leon: The Professional) makes use of both his stellar comedy and action chops, bringing deadpan humor and flexible forcefulness as he discovers this job may not be so easy to pull off amidst his bickering daughters, especially when his double-crossing ex-partner starts to fall for one of them. Totally entertaining and completely effervescent, Family Heist’s witty repartee, plethora of pratfalls, and romantic hijinks captures the slapstick spirit and scintillating style of the classic French comedies of yesteryear.
