As a cinematic confection from one of the masters, it's cotton candy, evaporating before it ever gets good.

A failed attempt at frivolity.

Pleases the eye without ever awakening the mind, offering a delicately told tale of intrigue and corruption without ever awakening the basic human passions which are supposedly its subject.

Chabrol's plot is silly, wholly unbelievable even for light fare, and downright confounding.

Chabrol's 50th film, made with the practiced ease of a master.

Like The Grifters and Bound, The Swindle succeeds because, in addition to telling an engaging crime story with vivid characters, it never takes itself too seriously.

Trust no one. Suspect everyone. It will still have one more angle to unfold that you will not anticipate.

Você pode até não rir durante a projeção, mas sairá do cinema com um sorriso de lado, admirado com a esperteza - e falta de escrúpulos - daquele casal tão simpático.

The Swindle might not be a deep film, but it makes no missteps in showing us the steps these two small time crooks take as they attempt to pull off a big time con.

Even when it threatens to sink into the familiar mechanics of a double-dealing heist story, Chabrol keeps curiosity piqued, the actors delightful and the outcome in sufficient question.

The ambiguous pairing of Victor (Serrault) and Betty (Huppert) is both comfortable and playful.

It's a fluffy, good-natured exercise in style that succeeds just fine, but doesn't leave you wanting any more.
