Fun treasure hunting adventure that has equal parts action, comedy and even romance.

It has all the elements of a perfect movie but falls just short of greatness. Still, lots of nostalgia value and certainly in Zemeckis' top 5 best movies.

Sie befindet sich im Besitz einer Karte...

This "Stone" is almost flawless

Romance novelist "Joan Wilder" (Kathleen Turner) has received a map in the mail wrapped up in plastic. Later in the day, after finding her beloved cat in her ransacked apartment, she gets a nervous phone call from her sister (Mary Ellen Trainor) who says that she must bring the map to Columbia or "they" (who are listening in) will kill her.

She heads to Columbia (played by Mexico due to real-life threats of kidnapping in Columbia) and gets on the wrong bus thanks to a mysterious man who follows her. When that mysterious man pulls a gun on her following the bus crashing into an abandoned car in the middle of the road, she is saved by a stranger in a scene similar to the opening of the movie which depicts the closing scene of "Wilder's" latest manuscript.

The man eventually identifi...
