The most erotic thing in their world was money.
MONEY WAS THE MOTIVE - AND PASSION, DANGER AND MURDER WAS THE RESULT!
This highly unusual and compelling thriller was described by the Daily Mirror as "a glossy, intriguing and smoothly persuasive story of greed, murder and corruption in the money markets". It stars Jane Fonda at her considerable best as an ex-film star who discovers, after the murder of her big business tycoon husband, that the finances of his company are in an unexpectedly shaky state and enlists the help of banking wizard Kris Kristofferson to investigate. But as the couple - who become lovers - probe deeper, they are caught up in a web of danger and intrigue, uncovering a sinister top-level conspiracy to destroy the world's banking system and bring about the ruin of the West. David Shaber's ingenious and exciting script lifts the lid off the workings of international high finance and, said The Hollywood Reporter, Alan J. Pakula's "direction is first rank" . Pakula maintains the suspense and mystery from start to finish and gives the movie stunning authenticity. Fonda and Kristofferson are in top form, giving, said The Catholic Herald "polished performances" while The Sunday Telegraph noted that "The chemistry between the two stars is potent". There is powerful support from Hume Cronyn as an ambiguous big banker and the mixture of romance, thrills ans intrigue adds up to a film which The Daily Telegraph described as "Original and entertaining".
