The story begins in a small rural village in Ladimirevci, Eastern Croatia in 1943, where a land owner Sima is helping the Partisan Movement and the official Ustasha regime in order to save the life of his son Beneš, who is enlisted in the German army. Sima doesn't want to let his son fight for the wrong side any more, and doesn't want to give him to the Partisans either, so he hides him in his attic for the time being. The story is interwoven with episodes of Sima trying to muster a beautiful stallion - Sokol - who only answers to his son Beneš and clearly doesn't like his old man.

Whether it was the poor direction, the bad script, or the horrible acting, this portrayed more the story of a pedophile and his victim than that of "tender love." I do not recommend this movie at all
Paul J (de) wrote: "A movie about those who appreciate the finest things in life... for free!"Movies from this period just have an appeal that modern movies don't. Especially when it comes to the genre of romantic comedies. This was when that genre was still respectable. How to Steal a Million has all the appeal of old Hollywood. It's a heist/ romantic comedy film with one of the best and most stunning leading ladies of all time, Audrey Hepburn. Peter O'Toole and Hugh Griffith also star in a movie made by one of the greats, William Wyler.There's nothing about How to Steal a Million, that makes it anything more than it was; a fun heist comedy. Set in the elegance of art loving, high society Paris, Audrey Hepburn stars as Nicole, daughter of rich art forger, Charles Bonnet. Charles makes a lot of money forging great works of art and selling them to eager art collectors. Nicole only wants him to stop. One night she catches a burglar(Peter O'Toole trying to steal one of her fathers forgeries, so instead of calling the police, she takes him back to his hotel room. When a museum that Charles Bonnet has loaned a prized sculpture, also a forgery to, has to do a technical test on it for insurance purposes; Nicole hires the burglar, Simon to steal it from the museum. Easier said then done, when the museum has the best security equipment money could buy back then.What this movie lacks in a believable love story, it more than makes up, with the beautiful sets, fun humor, and the great acting of the strong leading cast. A movie with Audrey Hepburn is always going to be worth the watch, throw in Peter O'Toole and William Wyler behind the camera and now you've really got something. It's too bad that Hollywood went away from this type of elegant, witty style. Now the romantic comedy genre is dead and buried, which is a good excuse to go revisit the classics, like How to Steal a Million.

It's not even a highlight, if you ask me. It deals with a group of families whose kids somehow come under the power of a mysterious alien that has landed on the beach nearby. That's about all I can say without getting into spoilers, but trust me when I say that even spoilers couldn't hurt this movie. It's not all that engaging, and boring most of the time with trite dialogue and situations. The kids do a decent job I suppose, but everything surrounding that is just tiresome. Nothing more really needs to be said, other than the fact that The Film Crew did an episode on this movie.
