A little nifty caper movie about a retired safe cracker named Gal in Spain. One day he gets visited from his old pal Don, a man he demonstrates great respect for – or better fear. Don tries to convince Gal to do a caper job in London and simply accepts no rejection.


I have rarely seen better characters and acting. Not accidently Ben Kingsley received an Oscar-nomination for this, although there are even better performances in this movie. A small flaw could only be the unspectacular ending. Nevertheless, if you like movies like Snatch or Pulp Fiction, you may give this a try.
