I saw this many years ago. All I can now remember is the ending, the kind of 'art', 'open' ending I particularly like.

John Flaus and Bryan Brown play brothers, the former a hardened crim dying of cancer, the latter retired and trying to go straight. The opening jewel robbery sequence is tautly directed ... the film ... creates a touching portrait of a dying man trying to relive past happiness with his brother's wife ... David Stratton: 252-3.
