Following the theft of a highly-secured piece of artwork, an agent convinces her insurance agency employers to allow her to wriggle into the company of an aging but active master thief. Connery's burglar takes her on suspiciously and demands rigorous training before their first job together–stealing a highly-valued mask from a chichi party. Their deepening attraction and distrust could tear apart their partnership but the promise of a bigger prize (some eight billion odd dollars) by Zeta-Jones keeps the game interesting. Only, who's playing with whom?

Did You Know?
The DVD contains a more ambiguous and much shorter alternate ending in which Gin simply reappears on the platform and smiles at Mac.
On several occasions, the characters refer to their plan to "download" information to the bank's computer. In order for their plan to work, they need to "upload" information. In order to tell the computer what to do, they need to give it information, not take information from it.
I'm not who you think I am, Mac.
I hope not. For your sake.
Can stealing be an art form? Convincing look.
This movie is one of those that keeps the characters purpose twisting and
turning. You have to second guess the ending twice. The vivacious Catherine
Zeta-Jones plays a top notch insurance agent that specializes in art theft.
She takes on the mission of catching a master thief(Sean Connery)by
convincing him that she too is a supreme art thief.
Just enough action to keep your attention. Wonderful scenery and the more
than just beautiful Zeta-Jones makes for advanced heartbeat. The age
difference of the two stars fits the script like a glove and gives a
fleeting glimpse of romance.
Camera work is intense. The big chase/escape scene is awesome.
