Interesting locations from the world's center of finance
This is a modern version of the Count of Monte Cristo, with interesting locations from the world's major centers of finance, probably set around 1973. Eric Stoltz delivers a good performance as always in this entertaining but neglected film which must have been "lost in distribution" because of its European origin. It is based on a novel by a French author, and not supposed to be a lesson in credibility. Like the Count of Monte Cristo, the film rises the interesting question about the difference between revenge and justice. It is both exciting, entertaining, thought-provoking and interesting. I will give it a rating of 9.
