When Ben is released from prison, undercover police agent Melody picks him up at the gate. Kahnitz, her sinister and ambitious boss, wants to see Ben convicted of another crime as soon as possible. Since Ben seems to show only mild interest both in Melody and in safe-busting she has to come up with a plan. Alas, the talkative cop has developed quite a liking for the taciturn gangster.Written by

Bonnie and Clyde meets Pulp Fiction meets Rainer Kaufmann
Interesting film that I think will stand the test of time, or at least be more appreciated as the years pass than it was on its initial release. Lots of flashy camera tricks to go along with the plot twists and killer conclusion. I just looked up the American version someone else mentioned and found out that Hilary Swank [Oscar-winner for "Boys Don't Cry"] is going to star. Wow! That should be something. But this film is well worth your time. Rainer Kaufmann is called the "German Brian DePalma." Now you can see why.
