The stripey shirts are actually Breton, I believe.

It would be more French if they had surrendered to the police.

As a no good teenager in rural West Texas my friends and I used to do almost the same thing.

Except in our version I would enter the Stop-n-Rob grab a 12 pack, make like I was heading towards the counter then, at the last minute, break for the door and yell "WAAAAAHOOOO!"

Hence the name, "Wahooing Beer". Im not sure that translates to French though.

Damn they made off with some high valued wine!  Probably hotel markup so probably only really worth 50,000

Sounds like a directed burglary.  Someone put out word that they wanted that wine, and a group stepped up to provide it.  Would be difficult to fence rare wines; this was for some billionaire's personal wine cellar.

Soon to be the plot of Taken 4, where Liam Neeson uses his special set of skills  to save the world from wine bandits.

The owner of the hotel, which is set in nearly 200 acres of rolling countryside surrounded by woods and fields, was reportedly woken by the fire alarm going off. He jumped in his car and succeeded in keeping up with the gang's van as it sped through country lanes before joining the A6 Autoroute du Soleil motorway south towards Lyon, while calling for reinforcements.

This thread has got me thinking about stereotypical French crime scenarios and I realize the simple baguette could be a perfectly serviceable concealed weapon if you baked it with a steel rod inside.

A Pergot is an experimental biofuel car.

It's a Peugeot, fueled by Pernod and escargot.

Did I just spot a continuity error?

The front license plate for the BMW is white, the rear plate is yellow.

You can tell its an old movie because they don't have the country code & EU symbol printed on the plates.

Been ages since I was there with idle time to look at license plates, so I obviously didn't remember the front/back thing.

Its the second time in two days that this same hotel cellar has been robbed.
