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.
