Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
British filmmaker John MacKenzie directs the crime thriller Quicksand, based on the book by Desmond Lowden. Michael Keaton plays Martin Raikes, a New York banker who goes to Monaco to investigate some questionable transactions. He discovers that the shifty bank account belongs to film producer Lela Forin (Judith Godrëche), whose next movie stars former action star Jake Mellows (Michael Caine). The production company turns out to be closely associated with a group of gangsters who wish Martin was out of the picture. They frame him for murder and make it look like his bank received a profit. Martin and Lela team up against the gangsters. Quicksand was released straight-to-video in Europe.
