Michael Caine stars as cat burglar and professional conman Henry Clarke. During a stay at a sanitarium for recovering alcoholics, Clarke is approached by a mysterious woman, Fe (Giovanna Ralli), who has a business proposition for him; her husband, Richard, plans the most ingenious of robberies. With Clarke's ability as a thief, they have a winning combination. The trio head to Spain to carry out a particularly audacious job. However, as the stakes grow higher and the risks become greater, relations between the three become dangerously complicated.

I'll give Deadfall 2 stars for good Spanish Locations and the odd character interchnage - Deadfall review by MD

Spoiler Alert
09/04/2014

A 1968 Cat Burglar's questionable liaison with a husband and wife team,negotiating homosexually,adultery and death,with a spoonful of half hearted family incest thrown in for good measure,sounds enticing.

In fact it's dreary,dull and repetitive.with all participants walking around in a state of stupor,barely raising a smile.

Your'e left wondering when it's actually going to start.Unfortunately it remains persistently in the slow lane.Nothing wrong with that in principle,except in other respects the enterprise is directed with an amateurish, unassured hand,with a complete lack of imagination.A decent short back and sides is also in order.

To be honest the only thing going for Deadfall are the decent Spanish locations,and a couple of pieces of challenging dialogue between Cain and Portman.,
