An American diamond merchant travels to Russia to sell rare blue diamonds of questionable origin. As the deal begins to collapse he falls into an obsessive relationship with a Russian cafe owner in a small Siberian town. As their passion builds, so does the treacherous world of the diamond trade from which he is unable to extricate himself. Both collide as the American man desperately looks for escape in a world with no exit.

The town in "Siberia" (actually shot in Marquette, Manitoba Canada) has green street signs that are obviously of North American design and would not be present in the real Siberia. See more »

Lucas, it's Pyotr. You ready to get rich? You better be. There is one small thing I will need to tell you. Or maybe not so small. Maybe quite big in fact. So hurry, please. St. Petersburg is not the same without you. Dasvidaniya.

Flat script, flat directing, flat acting. Ingredients that made this film slow, boring and for only viewing it in fast forward mode. I don't know why Mr. Reeves accepted to participate in it. I guess for paying some bills. A complete flop.
