A ruined USA citizen lives in Marbella on a yacht and plots to rob the money a powerful international arm-smuggling trader is going to deposit in a Swiss bank
30 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an unpretentious thriller with mild touches of humour and sex that seems to have been produced as a showcase of the cost of Malaga, and specifically of the then trendy city of Marbella. Despite the presence of Rod Taylor and Britt Ekland, this movie never quite made it out of Spain.

I was surprised to notice that a very aged Rod Taylor and a mature Britt Ekland, as the blonde & sexy former starlet that teams-up with Rod Taylor and joins not only his bed but also his robbery plans, were indeed effective on their roles. Being this an Spanish production, the cast was benefited with the presence of two of the most prestigious Spanish actors: Fernando Fernan Gomez and Francisco Rabal, and some younger talented people like Oskar Ladoire and Emma Suarez. All the above mentioned actors played the Spanish team of collaborators, specialised, respectively, on forgery of signatures (Gomez), wallet-picking (Rabal), and impersonation of characters (Ladoire, who works on a local night club imitating Groucho Marx). A very young Emma Suarez shows generously her beautiful breasts and other parts of her body, but she is also given the opportunity to display her acting skills as the frivolous and cheeky little girl (18 years old) that re-encounters her strained and distant father (Gomez) and tends to develop attraction/repulsion interactions with elderly men such as Rod Taylor, whom she first seduces and later insults in front of a crowd. By contrast, this time no nude scenes were required from a serene Britt Ekland that endures the humiliation of being cheated, although waiting for a change to take revenge and be free again from chauvinistic males such as the very-macho Rod Taylor.

In sum, you can watch it if you enjoy the sea, yachts, or you are an unconditional fan of any of the actors involved. Otherwise, you should have better things to do and you can perfectly skip this movie.
