Storyline

Two Americans, with their young daughter Trina, live in the northern Mexican desert, searching for family diamonds lost years before. Jump ahead, Trina's parents are mysteriously dead, and Trina, now grown, continues the search against the advice of Frank, an old family friend. Two gringo convicts, recently escaped from the Matamoros prison and headed for Texas, stumble upon the diamonds then find Trina and ask her for a ride. She realizes they've found the diamonds, keeps that from them, and tries to spirit the diamonds away. Various alliances form and break, one of the convicts tries to convince her to abandon her quest, and Frank watches from a distance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

a superb variation of Treasure of Sierra madre & Lust For Gold
11 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two of the best films with the searing for lost gems(or whatever) ' were The Treasure of Sierra madre & Lust For Gold

Slowburn is nearly in the same league as those.(No film will ever be as good as the 2 above titles) Against a sun bleached background we find Minnie Driver in her search for an ancestors catch of diamonds that were lost in a sand dune, many years earlier. James Spader & Josh Brolin are 2 escaped dim witted convicts who now are involved in the search. Stuart Wilson is the 4th member of this cast who was involved with Minnies mother. So for over 90 minutes, we have greed, lust danger & all the other instrumnets to make an excellent film Granted I am very partial to this type of movie

the acting by all is top draw & the entire production is first rate/

Rent this film, I am sure you will like it may rating is ****

as always jay harris
