La bonne année
La bonne année (also known in the United States as Happy New Year) is a 1973 film directed by Claude Lelouch. It tells the story of a gangster who organises a successful heist but is himself caught and jailed. Released early, he not only recoups his share of the takings but also regains his girlfriend.
The gangster Simon and his faithful accomplice Charlot take a holiday in Cannes. Their plan is to rob the Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery shop on the seafront. Exhaustively, they watch and log the movements of the staff and the security routines. Disguised as a rich old man, Simon gets to know the manager by choosing items for an alleged sick sister. He also gets distracted by Françoise, the beautiful owner of the antiques shop next door. She is on her own and willing to enjoy dates.
