Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
"Cascadeur" is the French term for a film action coordinator, which actor-producer Hardy Martins did on German films for a decade, also training for 24 months at the Los Angeles International Stunt Association, before directing this $4 million German action-adventure in the Indiana Jones tradition. In Caracas, art-history student Christin (Regula Grauwiller) tracks a dying Nazi, acquires a unique key that leads to the Amber Room and a $150 million treasure stolen from Leningrad by the Nazis during WWII. Captured by a German intelligence Colonel (Heiner Lauterbach) during a Caracas chase, Christin is sent on a plane to Bavaria but escapes in a parachute, landing near former stuntman Vincent (Hardy Martins). Tracked by the Colonel's men, Vincent and Christin set out across Bavaria to find the Amber Room. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
