Director: Jonathan Glazer

Writers: Louis Mellis; David Scinto

Keywords: Crime, Bank Robbery

An ex-gangster finds himself locked into a battle with an old cohort seeking to drag him out of retirement for a big heist.

Once-fearsome gangster Gary Dove abandons his life of crime in favor of a quiet existence in rural Spain, enjoying the company of wife Deedee and friends. The unexpected arrival of one-time partner Don Logan into Gary's life shatters his sunny disposition when the active criminal requests his assistance in robbing a large bank, escalating into a heated -- and potentially devastating -- standoff when Don refuses to go along with his plan.

Review by anonymous (posted on 6-Jun-2005)

Great movie! Small and intriguing, yet pivotal, role by the now very famous Ian McShane (Deadwood on HBO) as Teddy Bass, and an oscar nominated performance by the incomparable Ben Kingsley as Don Logan. But the true center of this film is Ray Winstone as Gary "Gal" Dove, a 'retired' gangster who is pressed back into doing one last job in a surprising turn of events. This film is a diamond in the rough when compared to many of its contemporary gangster films, it's smart, funny, sexy and has great music. You'll never close your eyes while sitting at the pool again!
