After he steals a Velázquez painting from a castle, gentleman art thief Jim Bourne is blackmailed by Dr. Muñoz, who uses evidence of the theft to force Bourne and his co-conspirator and now-wife Eve to steal a much more prominent painting, Goya's "Second of May", from the Prado. Elaborate and generally lifeless caper, saved only somewhat by its star power.
