A Simple Plan

1998, 2 hours
In a snow covered forest, three friends stumble on an astronomical sum of money. Deciding to risk retaining the treasure, their simple plan of avoiding consequences veers out of control, punctuated with killings. Evil is not something which people inherently are. Everybody is subject to temptation and the demands of the environment, and greed is a part of nature. The hapless characters are caught in a downward spiral and plunge into doom. The sense of right and wrong is weakly, if at all, ingrained in us, and we are at the mercy of events over which we have little control.

The movie surely shows us that we really have to call the police if we come across a moneybag.

Crime seems to pay in real life, though at the cost of inner debasement. What to do with a banknote you find on your way?
