Dein Partner ist der Tod Regie Daryl Duke


It’s unrepentantly Toronto-centric, from views of the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Ontario to the presence of a pre-SCTV John Candy in a key supporting role. The film has been widely, and correctly, celebrated as an example of first-rate filmic engineering, a rare case of true alchemy wrought out of banal formula.

The script by Curtis Hanson is relentlessly logical as it pits the chess-playing, game theory wielding Gould against the brute force of a sociopathic thief named Harry, played with dark charisma by Christopher Plummer. Their pas de deux takes place all over Toronto (this was one of the early Canadian Tax Shelter films – 100% of costs were tax deductible), and what began as a teasing game becomes something elemental.
