Story of an aging gambler, Bob (Nolte), who tries to rob a casino in the south of France, hoping to end his losing streak. What he doesn't know is that someone tipped off the cops ahead of time.
I find Jordan to be a spectacularly lugubrious and tedious director who mistakes slowness for depth. His last movie 'The End Of The Affair' was an exercise in pointlessness that was just excruciating to watch. I can't see this being any different - and then there's also the added attraction of a Euro-pudding cast with varying degrees of ability to act convincingly in English. Let's call it 'Penelope Cruz Syndrome'. Should be fun seeing how Nolte measures up to his recent DUI mug shot though.
