Slow-starting crime comedy with De Niro as a semi-retired thief, living a quiet life running a Montreal jazz club, until his fence (Brando) and a wannabe theif (Norton) talk him into pulling another job in Montreal's customs house. Bassett is DeNiro's squeeze (good taste there) who wants him out of the life. Painstaking but realistic in its portrayal of the preparation and events leading to the heist, but when things finally get going, it crackles with tense "will-they-get-caught" moments and double-crosses aplenty. De Niro is solid, as always, but he seems like he may be getting too old for this stuff. Norton gets most of the screen time, and uses it well. Brando is surprisingly understated in an amusing way.
