This street-racing movie was set in Germany and had a European flavor.
There are four main characters:
- the female owner of a family garage,
- her boyfriend, who’s a street racer and in law enforcement,
- an American pizza delivery boy who wants to race,
- the wife of a rich German who wants him to teach her to race.
The primary source of tension (there are several) comes from the struggle to keep the nearly bankrupt family garage open.
What sticks in my mind most is a negative. After some kid loses a street race, one of the henchmen of the crime boss cuts his hand off. Yuck!
