Notable for the chance to see two great veteran actors when they were young and beautiful
18 June 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A tale of a master thief and his attraction to a young and somewhat naive girl. Girl tries to change his ways but to no avail. Notable for the youthful appearances of two great actors. At this time Tom Bell was much better known than Judi Dench. Good acting in an indifferent story but good shots of a Maserati when this marque was in its heyday.(Mistrale)
