I liked the movie. It was great. I just wish it would have been copied from a better print of the movie. Video quality was not that great. It had a tendencey to skip scenes on my machine.

This is an absolutely awful DVD, and I'm not talking about the film itself. I can't say anything about the film, because the technical quality is so bad I couldn't get 15 minutes into it. The video has no midtones and no sharpness, and the audio is muddy in the extreme. If I had to guess, I'd say it was made by placing a video camera in front of a television showing the film, with a microphone placed in front of the TV speaker. The result: clumsy editing (for TV time, no doubt), bleeped words (likely again for TV) and unlistenable sound. Women's voices are lost, as are any male voice that isn't loud. In short, this gives every indication of being a bootleg -- and not a good one at that.

I'll start by admitting that I didn't watch the whole movie, it's that bad. I thought it would be better given the cast, but it's obviously a low budget film. The dialog is clichéd and unsophisticated, really poor writing. The movie itself had bad music, bad sound, and a lot of color distortion. I know it's an old movie but it seemed to be in exceptionally poor condition.

The Swiss Conspiracy, 1976 film

Switzerland's biggest industry is banking due to its secret numbered accounts which provide a safe sanctuary. [Only as long as their government can withstand foreign powers.] This can be used by those who want to hide their monies, legal or illegal, from government investigators.

The movie begins at a restaurant. An assassin shoots a lone customer. Then the credits roll with a view of snow-covered mountains. We see a letter on the floor of a bank; it is taken to a manager. Next a suitcase arrives at an airport. This customer has nothing to declare for the contents of this suitcase. He is followed. That found letter asks for ten million francs to prevent their secret accounts from being revealed. A new customer drives up. Parking is tight. Mr. Hayes arrives with a complaint. This crime must be investigated without publicity. Hayes has an objection, he will make a telephone call. We see an answering machine that records phone calls (the office model). Unexpected complications?

David Christopher was hired by the Hurtil Bank. He is attacked in an underground parking garage but escapes. The police arrive. The man got away, but is chased again. There are shots in the street. Hayes bites the dust. Christopher arrives for his meeting. Was this crime an inside job? Did Christopher rent a car? What was left in the trunk? Christopher gets a message from Jack Foley. He meets another customer. When he returns to the bank he finds another letter. The bank will pay, the customers will take a small charge. There is a car chase on a mountain road. They kiss and make up. Later Christopher sees two bank employees meeting. More scenes of Zurich streets. David meets Rita. Rita meets Franz Benninger. David is followed, the police follow the followers.
