A reckless adventurer is drawn into a dangerous scheme involving jewel thieves in the rousing German thriller Rot wie das Blut (1998). Andre Eisermann stars as Ronnie, a thrill-seeking pearl diver whose dry spell spells disaster for the treasure shop he runs with his loyal wife. In a bid to make some fast cash, Ronnie hooks up with a shady Belgian syndicate that deals in diamonds and rubies. Ronnie begrudgingly agrees to act as the front man for a dangerous transaction in exchange for heaps of cash. Of course, a bit of nude prodding from femme fatale Stefanie Stappenbeck can’t help but sweeten the deal.
