but for 20 years in the pen.

You see him play?

Better not have a heart condition.

Caf latte.

- Vichy water.

Following the water city route like this,

he depraved me.

To rob him at the casino,

it's better...

It's better not to have

a heart condition.

There were two cops tailing him.

And he was going out

without a pound.

What it's gonna be the day

he'll leave with the money box.

We'll don't even have the chance

to ask him the time.

You have a funny way

to see things...

I try to be realistic.

And so?

There's probably...

I'm listening.

Grubert is going out of the casino.


And then?

- What, then?

Is he living on a boat?

At the hotel?

How many kms away

from the casino?

Which way is he taking?

I don't know.

But that's what we need to know.

We'll work on that

for 24 hours and then,

we'll know if the job can be done.

What if he wins in the meantime?

Too bad.

Or do the job alone.

That's smart. My blood pressure

is at 8. Chicken heartbeats.

A partner already dump me

because he was a gambler.

One night, at Divonne,

he won. Never saw him after.

No change.

- Me neither.

You pulled that trick yesterday.

I don't understand how someone

can pull you that trick twice?

Let me tell you something.

Grasshoppers of your kind...

Pay yourself.

- For everything? Coke, egg, croissant?


You could say thanks.

I didn't ask you for anything.

The same night, we got started.

We had to study in details

what Grubert was doing.

Good evening, Mr Grubert.

Mr Grubert's car!

I follow him.

Make enquiries about the driver's habits.

Sleepless nights and green baize,

aren't you sick of it?

What about going to Venice?

You're right.

It's time to go to bed.

You'll keep on eating eggs

if you let go johns like this.
