Reporter and Cameraman Cliff Reynolds(Pinsent), while filming at Montreal's Municipal Beach during the Summer Heatwave of '74, coincidentally photographs recent prison escapee, Jerry Cuozzo(Lawrence Dane). A series of vignettes ensue, starting with Reynolds' averice and curiosity. Cuozzo and his friend-girl's paranoia of getting caught, ushers in a plethora of bad judgment calls, along with some "hit-and-miss" shooting from the hip decisions. Never the less, Cuozzo(Dane) has a lot on his plate, and seems to do quite well: First, to allude the police, double-cross his former mobster associates and throw them off the trail, and complete a "deal" regarding a certain Shipment from France of "guess what?" Not a particularly novel theme, but Alexandra Stewart and Domini Blythe are great to watch-They are both very pretty. This is a real sleeper and worth watching.
Lawrence Dane is exceptional. He must be of Italian origins. Canada has a huge Italian population.
Canada usually excels in many other areas, other than movie-making, but this one is very good. It is a NFB of Canada production. They are usually very good.
Try not to miss this one.
Music is great, too. Typically 1970's, right from Hollywood!
I hope Pinsent and Dane--along with the two gorgeous girls are still going strong!
