0 Love It
A sometimes intelligent examination of the mind of a professional killer (Coburn) sent to Europe to dispose of three men. Plans start to go awry when his emotional reserves (he deliberately seeks transactions with prostitutes) are plumbed by Remick. Unfortunately there are too many distractions for the film to really work: Coburn appears too inflexible, the pretty European locations look deliberately chosen for the American market, and too many well known faces (Magee, Palmer, Dauphin) are left with too little to do.

an interesting and satisfying film. the otherwise romantic twist takes over,while coburn and remick juggle emotions. add that philosophic touch to the dialouge now and then proving that new ideas can replace old. if you see the light through the dark subject matter it becomes plausible. Lee remick is eye catching.
