This Movie is remade into The Tourist
The title character of the film is a genius career criminal, Anthony Zimmer, who is wanted by police around the world. Zimmer is an elusive character, and no known description is available as Zimmer has apparently had drastic plastic surgery to alter his appearance and voice. A standout detective, Akerman, is ahead of others in the race to catch the criminal mastermind. Akerman knows that Zimmer will risk everything to see the lover he left behind, Chiara. While Chiara is waiting, she receives a message from Zimmer, who has become aware of Akerman's trap. To mislead all those following him, Zimmer asks her to "pick up" a stranger and make his enemies believe he is the one they're looking for. Chiara chooses Francois, a rather bland man who, fascinated by the young lady, is quickly and easily set up to take the fall. The movie follows a series of manipulations as Chiara and Francois start a romantic relationship and characters realise that they are merely pawns to Zimmer, the unseen mastermind of the game.
