Self-made billionaire Thomas Crown is bored of being able to buy everything he desires. Being irresistible to women, he also does not feel any challenge in that area. But there are a few things even he can't get, therefore Thomas Crown has a seldom hobby: He steals priceless masterpieces of Art. After the theft of a famous painting from Claude Monet, the only person suspecting Thomas Crown is Catherine Banning. Her job is to get the picture back, no matter how she accomplishes her mission. Unfortunately, Catherine gets involved too deeply with Thomas to keep a professional distance to the case. Fortunately, Thomas seems to fall for her, too. Written by

In the film the painting stolen by Mr. Crown: "San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk " by Monet, is said to be the first impressionistic painting in the world. But according to Wikipedia the first painting is "Impression, soleil levant", also by Monet, which gave name to "Impressionism". See more »
If you have a chance, make sure you see this film. It's an excellent re-make, Rene Russo and Pierce Brosnan give Academy Award caliber performances. In an unusual tribute to the original, Faye Dunaway is cast as Brosnan's psychologist with whom he discusses his disillusionment with life and love. Even the normally annoying Denis Leary gives a good performance as the embittered detective who watches Russo's struggles between her heart and her job. Frankie Faison has an excellent supporting role(most may remember him as the landlord in Eddie Murphy's "Coming to America"). The film is dazzlingly shot, the yacht racing sequences are really beautiful. And above all, it's an intense love story that won't leave you disappointed. Very steamy scenes between the two make this a date movie, not a movie you watch with your kids!
