A pleasant surprise

A lighthearted heist movie with a lot going for it. First of all, the chemistry between Donald Sutherland and Brooke Adams is terrific. He plays criminal master mind Reese who's planning to break into a new bank, which is just being built in downtown Vancouver. While stealing the plans to the building he's accidentally photographed by Stacey (Adams). He looks her up, trying to get the negatives, and he falls in love. This puts a little bit of strain on his relationship with his partner in crime Norman, beautifully played by Paul Mazursky.

Almost everything in this film has a relaxed feel to it. Conflicts are mostly resolved rather quickly and the story just sort of breezes along, with beautiful Vancouver locations. There are a couple of suspenseful scenes, when Reese and Norman are nearly caught, but mostly this is not about the heist itself, but more about the people who perpetrate it. As a comedy it offers no outlandish gags, but there are a lot of wonderful scenes, most of them involving Norman being a nervous wreck or Adams being way too cute.

I thought it was a very pleasant surprise.

Underrated Gem

Starting watching it the other night. I'm a sucker for '79 filmed in Vancouver movies. Rated 22% favorability by Xfinity TV rating system. Expected zero. Expected to stop watching because it would be so bad in a few minutes. Surprise. Thought it was a super movie. Probably, because I expected so little. Usually how those things work. Look for it. Enjoy.

OK

Donald Sutherland and Paul Marzursky are planning a bank robbery when Sutherland begins an affair with photographer Brooke Adams. In a stretching of their usual screen personas, Marzursky is neurotic and Miss Adams is quirky. DP Jack Cardiff shoots Vancouver which, for a change, is supposed to be Vancouver.

It's an okay movie, which thirty years earlier would have been an ordinary programmer, or even a B movie. Unexceptional, some good moments, but adds nothing substantial to anyone's career, although I'm sure everyone worked their hardest.
