Quotes

Joe: I don't like games either. Normally this would be a very nice situation. Two people, in a quiet cosey car, just the right atmosphere for romance. You're beautiful, but tonight I must decline. No time. Please, the jewels.
[holds out his hand]
Michelle Nolton: [hoarsely] I didn't take them.
Joe: You know...
[takes off his glasses, cleans them]
Joe: your answer amuses me. Now, Floyd may be very stupid about a lot of things, but he has... very good taste in women.

A "so what?" kind of film.
24 July 2002 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

This Italian crime film is interesting at first, but the pace never picks up. Fabio Testi is a good-hearted robber stranded at the "Last Chance Motel", Ursula Andress is the beautiful (but somewhat stiff) wife of the motel's owner, and Eli Wallach is Testi's partner, who comes after him when the diamonds they stole somehow disappear. You'd expect that the appearance of Wallach would help increase the tension, but that doesn't happen. Some of the night scenes (including the sex scene) are so dark you can't see anything! (**)
