The QUICKIE (2001)

Film details

Synopsis

Thriller about a Russian gangster, Oleg, who has bought a plush residence in Malibu. He throws a New Year's Eve party to announce that he is handing 'the business' over to his half-brother Alex. Their mother, Anna, is also in attendance with her fifth husband Miguel (a Peruvian freedom fighter) and her third husband Michael (with six months to live) is also present. Oleg is obscenely wealthy but has few close friends and no-one to trust. Things take a sinister turn with the arrival of an enormous statue of the Virgin mary with a note suggesting Oleg "go pray". After cockroaches appear in the kitchen, Oleg calls in an exterminator and the beautiful Lisa duly arrives. Oleg suggests they have "a quickie".
