Storyline

Maya and Tony are a couple of young grifters always looking for their big score. One day they meet Pierce, another victim at first, but who quickly reveals himself as a senior fraudster posing as a "mark". Pierce recruits Maya and Tony to help with his big score. Before long Maya and Tony are in way over their heads. Maya assumes a new identity and seeks the help of Felix to protect her. It's a dirty game of betrayal, murder, and seduction. It's one deadly, sordid affair. Written by Anonymous

Unpredictable and Entertaining
18 February 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I first saw part of the movie on television, but the sync of the actors voices was not matched up well. Maybe because the actors spoke English and they were redone in German. This happens often. I was able to retrieve a copy in English through a friend and Wow! I'm glad I waited to watch it. It is a thriller, some say a mix of "Pretty Woman" and "The Grifter". I just know it was enjoyable and just when I thought I knew where it was heading, it surprised me. It also has a fun comedic flair throughout. The American actress Bobbie Phillips is a wonderful actress and played many different characters. She is also quite beautiful. German actor Thomas Heinz is good as well (although this role is different from most things I've seen him in, so it was hard to get used to). Overall, I would say this movie is a must see for anyone who enjoys thrillers.
