Storyline

Two novice thieves are plotting to rob a bank in Vancouver. A photographer snaps a shot of one thief as he is carrying the bank building's blueprints. The would-be thief then begins a relationship with the photographer and attempts to retrieve the photos. Meanwhile, the thieves' plot consists of this: one man will enter the bank building after dark, while the other man sits in a van and uses a computer to unlock the building's doors. The final step involves transporting the cash to a freight ship waiting on the docks, for transportation to a money launderer in Macau. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Forgettable

This is the typical heist movie made during the seventies. A comedy one, romance mixed up with thriller. Don't expect the unexpected. No surprise at all. But Donald Sutherland is wonderful, as usual. The heist itself is too rapidly executed. Too easily. I expected much more from this movie. And it seems that the director was not only Noel Black but also Jack Cardiff himself. I don't understand what that means...

Cardiff is not credited but the dictionaries and IMDb notes indicate that the great director of photography of so many masterpieces made this feature. So...

It is nevertheless a rare movie. It's hard to catch it. But I think it is now available on DVD, in department stores.

Up to you, if you like this kind of movies.
