In the first 20 minutes of the film, while Peter Falk is talking to the antique shop girl in the doorway of her shop, his head is tilted to the left when the camera is facing him. With the camera behind him, his head is suddenly straight up or slightly tilted to his right. This happens twice as he is talking to her. It's minor, but very discernible. See more »
Falk is fantastic as a charming thief in this Americanized remake of Claude Lelouch's 1973 film "La bonne annee." With the help of partner Durning, both men set out to pull a heist on a Florida jewelery shoppe, but things don't always go as planned. Falk carries the picture with his savvy characterization, aided in many scenes by some masterful make-up, which received an Oscar nomination.
