Sakamoto’s reshaped version of Ravel’s “Bolero” accompanies the virtuoso Cannes Film Festival-set jewel-heist setpiece that sets in motion a dreamy, sinuously crafted thriller that’s filled with surface pleasures and meta-cinematic tricks. Rebecca Romijn plays the titular thief, whose attempts to start a new life in Paris are complicated when she crosses paths with photographer Antonio Banderas.

A film by Brian De Palma

[Sakamoto’s] traipsing boleros and Vertigo homages are unforgettable.”
