DOWN & DIRTY:
Action/Thriller: An international group of criminals join forces in an attempt to steal a mysterious case with none knowing who hired them, the motives of the others, or the contents of the case.


NITTY GRITTY:
Deirdre (NATASCHA McELHONE) is a mysterious Irish woman who assembles an international group of criminals in Paris for a special mission. Joining Americans Sam (ROBERT DE NIRO), and Larry (SKIPP SUDDUTH), the designated driver, are Vincent (JEAN RENO), the French coordinator, Gregor (STELLAN SKARSGARD), the electronics specialist, and Spence (SEAN BEAN), the weapons specialist.

Other than Deirdre, none of the team members know who's hired them, the motives of the others, or the exact details of the mission, other than that they're to ambush a multi-car caravan and steal a case that's heavily guarded.

After staking out their prey and formulating their plan in Nice, they strike and retrieve the case. Sam notices that silver paint rubbed off the case on his jacket, so he throws the case under a car and it explodes. Gregor has the 'real' case and he's gone. As allegiances change at the drop of a hat, the team members realize they can trust no one.

As the members attempt to retrieve the case and its unknown contents, they discover that others, including Russian businessman Mikhi (FEODOR ATKINE) and Seamus (JONATHAN PRYCE), also want the case and will kill anyone in their way.

THE ENDING:
Sam and Vincent team up and track Gregor to an ice skating exhibition. Gregor sells the case to the Russian Mikhi and is then killed. The featured skater (KATARINA WITT) is shot by a sniper and the audience panics and runs from the arena making it difficult for Sam and Vincent to find the case.

The Russian is stopped in the parking lot by Seamus and is killed for the case. The police close in and Sam sees Deidre. She is waiting for Seamus. Sam tells her to just leave or she will be caught. She drives away.

Sam corners Seamus and is about to be shot when Vincent kills Seamus. The case is confiscated by the police. Sam and Vincent get away, but wonder what was in the case that so many people died for.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
What the heck was in that case? Perhaps the briefcase from 'Pulp Fiction'.*grin* RUNNER-UP: The scene where DeNiro instructs Reno on how to remove bullets from his body.
