A well-made crime thriller with plenty of plot twists.
18 October 1998 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent delitto thriller starring Franco Nero as a middle-aged, brown-eyed cripple who works as an accountant for a bank. Little do his employers realize it's a disguise that he has perfected so that he can rob them blind and in the process flashing his natural blue eyes to throw them off the track. Unfortunately for him his plan isn't quite perfect and suddenly several people start to catch on. Very well executed plot twists with Nero turning in a top-notch performance.
