film profile] and Thomas Vincent’s Le nouveau protocole (see news). Besnard has also scripted Cash.
A big-time con artist, Cash (Dujardin) is seeking revenge for the death of his brother who was killed by a poor loser. Cash decides to deal with things his own way, without violence. He gets together a team and organises a robbery. But in scams like this, friends often turn out to be traitors and vice versa. Reno plays the bad guy and Valeria Golino is a member of the crime gang in this "intertwining tale where everyone lies, bluffs, seduces and pretends to be something that he isn’t”.
Produced by Patrice Ledoux for Pulsar Productions, Cash received co-production funding from TF1 Films Production. TFM Distribution will release the film in French theatres and TF1 International is handling international sales.
The film’s 11-week shoot will take place in the Côte d’Azur and Paris.
