Storyline

Christian Biton is a skiing instructor in the Italian Alps. He has a wealthy girlfriend, Monica Scotti, and expensive tastes. To be able to live in style he has a plan : to lay hands on the 250,000 dollars that represent the gains of the winter resort where he works. He manages to persuade Monica to join in the heist as well as Bob Skinner, a ski racer down on his luck who needs the money to replenish his finances. The caper as such succeeds but the three accomplices should not celebrate too soon. An insurance investigator indeed appears on the scene... Written by Guy Bellinger

Being a ski junkie helps.
15 July 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

You have to be a big time lover of skiing to get into this film. It also helps if you're old enough to remember when Jean Claude Killy was one of the most famous athletes and people in the world, even to those who didn't ski. The 1968 triple Olympic gold medallist in mens alpine skiing who hailed from France is the star of this virtually forgotten movie. A plot to heist about a quarter of a million dollars and make the get away on skis is the plot. Killy gets to demonstrate his skiing ability, which is vastly superior to his acting ability. If you're a skier you'll enjoy. If you're not you may find this film unbearable.
