This movie manages to pack into an hour what most take two hours to do. The frustrated husband decides to make a run for it - his plan is to empty the safe he's in charge of (full of foreign currency) and smuggle it out of the country and make a new start in Panama. Except everything that can possibly go wrong DOES! He ends up on the run with a beautiful girl who is trying to flee her husband and finds himself in an awful pickle, and finally begins to realise that maybe life wasn't so bad beforehand...excellent performances all around and the first half will have you constantly on your toes, especially with the very 'Jaws'-like drumbeat (perhaps, seeing the date, this was what inspired Jaws? Hmmm)
I liked it. 9/10.
