London, 1960. Laura Quinn is the lone female executive at London Diamond Corporation. She is frustrated as her talents are rarely acknowledged and her less-experienced male co-workers are promoted ahead of her. She is shocked, but intrigued, when the mild-mannered night janitor, Mr. Hobbs, approaches her with a daring but simple plan to steal a handful of diamonds from the vault. Laura agrees to help, but she is soon in over her head. And it is not long before insurance investigator Mr. Finch has his eyes on her.
It took the heist of the century to settle the score.

Did You Know?
Derren Nesbitt when he went for a medical was aghast that pictures of all the actors in the doctors waiting room were of dead actors!.
When Laura and Mr. Hobbs originally meet in the pub to discuss the heist, there are two men playing darts only inches from Mr. Hobbs' shoulder. From the reverse angle, there is only one seated man drinking and ignoring them.
May I give you some advice, Miss Quinn?
Well, you are the one holding the gun.
Life is for living. It's there for the taking. Grant yourself no regrets.
Everything works in this movie : The direction, the acting, the
shooting, the story and the script – one commentators claimed that it
was limited and one dimensional but it is quite on the contrary : the
script was written very elegantly with quite a lot of subtelties and
these would probably be missed by those who are used the usual wham
bahm great Hollywood films.
The only (small) flaw in the film was its so called "feministic"
flavour, it was completely unnecessary – any, if all, "politically
correct messages", would have been understood from the story itself –
there was no need to shove it in the audience face.
All in all this movie is intelligent, interesting and exciting. I
highly recommend it.
