Financial wizard "Doc" Fletcher (Michael Caine) is sent by crime boss Joe Fiore (Martin Balsam) to buy a bank in Switzerland in order to more easily launder their profits. When he arrives, Fletcher finds that the bank, acquired by his associate Prince di Siracusa (Louis Jourdan), consists of some shabby offices above a restaurant. To make up for this, the Prince suggests that Fletcher invests in a silver mine owned by Shireen and Agha Firdausi (Stéphane Audran and David Warner). This solves one problem, but the mine also attracts the attention of some of the most powerful people in the silver business. Fletcher must pull out all his wheeler-dealing skills in order to keep hold of everything he's worked for, in the process romancing a banker's discontented wife (Cybill Shepherd).

It is undeniably shallow ... minimal hole ridden and cliche derivative plot and yet you can discover its depth and let that envelope you. This is much more film noir than science fiction. Perhaps they should have focused on allegory and not be distracted by attempts at mainstreamism. Enjoy the pieces, if you can. The time is well spent.

He's still very upset about her death, and meets someone who represents a company which can bring her back to life. His mom starts to behave oddly, and soon realizes he'll have to keep paying the company for injections to keep her acting correctly. Steve starts to get romantically involved with a woman, though his mother is very disapproving. In some ways similar to Dead Alive, but nowhere as good.

Scott W (br) wrote: Interesting adaptation of the Kurt Vonnegut novel which perhaps suffers a little with pacing and tone, but this mirrors Billy Pilgrim's time jumps from 1970s to 1945 Dresden to the strange planet of Tralfamadore. At times moving, funny and preposterous, but always intriguing.
