Synopsis

Bob Montagnet (Nolte) lives in the twilight zone of the Nice underworld - a seedy universe blurred by drugs and gambling binges. A casino heist, with the help of his two accomplices Raoul (Darmon) and Paulo (Taghmaoui) might be his only chance to double down.

Bob’s friendship with cop Roger (Karyo) is stretched to breaking point, and his relationship with club owner Remi (Lavoine) is destroyed when Bob attempts to protect Anne (Kukhianidze) from the life of prostitution Remi has pre-ordained. The gang of ‘experts’, including security genius Vladimir (Kusturica), who Bob hand-picks to execute his two-timing fraud are sucked into the gambler’s vortex of fantasy and dreams with both comic and tragic results, especially for "Judas" drug-dealing Said (Embarek).
