La Bonne Annee, by Claude Lelouch, (1973)

In the end of 1972, the con artist and thief Simon (Lino Ventura) receives a remission to celebrate the New Year outside the Prison La Santé. While heading to his apartment in Paris to meet his mistress Françoise (Françoise Fabian), Simon notices that a car is chasing his cab. In the apartment, Simon leans that Françoise has a lover and he leaves the place without being noticed.

Simon recalls the Christmas of 1966, when he travels out-season to Cannes with his partner and friend Charlot (Charles Gérard) to heist the jewelry Van Cleef & Arpels. While plotting a scheme to rob the jewelry, Simon meets the intellectual antique dealer Françoise whose shop is the next-door neighbor of the jewelry and he falls in love with her. But his scheme does not work as planned and Simon is arrested.
