Oil billionaire Happer sends Mac to a remote Scotish villiage to secure the property rights for an oil refinery they want to build. Mac teams up with Danny and starts the negotiations, the locals are keen to get their hands on the 'Silver Dollar' and can't believe their luck. However a local hermit and beach scavenger, Ben Knox, lives in a shack on the crucial beach which he also owns. Happer is more interested in the Northern Lights and Danny in a surreal girl with webbed feet, Marina. Mac is used to a Houston office with fax machines but is forced to negotiate on Bens terms.

  • Falsche Sprachwahl

    Written on 29. December 2005 by Swiss.

    Wieso bloss muss man sich einen solch' köstlichen Filme 'Deutsch' gesprochen zu Gemüte führen? Das Lokalkolorit, die Schottische Sprache geht hier verloren. Das gibt wirklich nur ein schwaches "gut". Ein Rat an die Verleger: Nutzt den Vorteil der DVD und bietet dem Käufer das Originalsprache! Cheers.

  • wieder mal typisch!!!
