Va Banque Details


Not to be confused with the 1980 Polish film of the same title, this Va Banque is a lively drama about three ordinary and disillusioned citizens who decide to rob an armored car. Helen's ([[Performer~P20903~Grazyna Dylong~grazynadylong]]) boutique is not doing so well, Paul's ([[Performer~P107846~Achim Reichel~achimreichel]]) garage is in the same shape, and the ex-lawyer Stefan ([[Performer~P138908~Winfried Glatzeder~winfriedglatzeder]]) has had it with making do as a taxi driver. Stefan meets an armored-car driver while playing tennis and soon has all the right info to pull off a heist. Once Helen and Paul throw in their lot with Stefan, the robbery is a done deal. What happens afterwards is not the usual moralistic ending for a cops-and-robbers tale. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
