From Paris, Rome, New York, London… A Carnival of Thieves comes to Rio to make a Grand Slam!
A quiet yet cunning schoolteacher recruits an elite team of international criminals for the ultimate caper: robbing $10 million in diamonds from an impenetrable Rio de Janeiro vault at the frenzied peak of the city’s Carnival. The planning is meticulous. The crime must run like clockwork. But even if they can pull off the most daring theft in criminal history, are the wildest surprises of all yet to come?

Hollywood legend Edward G. Robinson, Klaus Kinski (NOSFERATU), Janet Leigh (PSYCHO) and Adolfo Celi (THUNDERBALL) head an international cast in this white-knuckle hit that also features an ultra-swinging theme score by the legendary Ennio Morricone.
