Found 10th Sep 2009
My husband and I watched this film the other night and have been completely stumped by the ending. We just don't get it - whats the twist/catch. Can someone please explain the significance of the note?

I hope someone can put us out of our misery

Does this help
Thomas Crown, a young, handsome millionaire pulls off a perfect crime by having five men rob a bank and dump the money - approximately $2.6 million - in a trash can. Crown retrieves the money later and deposits it in a Geneva bank. Vicki Anderson, an independent insurance investigator, is contracted to investigate the heist. As she digs deeper into the case she begins to suspect Crown's involvement. In an attempt to get closer she begins seeing Crown socially, openly telling him she is investigating him. Their relationship evolves into an affair. The relationship is threatened by Vicki's obligation to bring Thomas Crown to justice.

Crown decides to organize another robbery for the sheer sake of rebelling against the authority. He asks Vicki to join him in his flight afterwards, but she betrays him to her contractors. Moving in to make the arrest, she finds Crown sent a messenger in his place with a salutation. Crown is then shown flying away in a jet, a smile on his face but tears are in his eyes.

he hopes that her love will override her duty and she will join him in his hideaway, but he realises she probably won't

he knows that Vicki will betray him so dupes her and frees himself... but loses out in love x x
