A cabaret dancer in Hong Kong is hired by a cat burglar to help steal a priceless and well-protected sculpture from Ahmad Shahbandar, one of the wealthiest men in the world; she is a spitting image for Shahbandar's late wife, but the urbane recluse is no fool. Complex, entertaining, and at times, deliciously funny caper. Received Oscar nominations for Best Set Decoration, Best Costume Design and Best Sound.
