Scene synopsis: Set in late 1960's Europe, "Foreign Film" might have been made by Michelangelo Antonioni, but wasn't. In this scene, our protagonist Ingrid (an extremely attractive former airline stewardess who now runs her own very hip travel agency) has just completed a location shoot with freelance photographer Erik when she notices that Erik has left behind in the Amsterdam airport departure lounge a small camera bag containing a flash attachment. Trying to be helpful, she gives the bag to Jane, her stewardess friend (who is also very attractive) to bring to London on the next flight where it can be returned to Erik by Ingrid's eccentric sculptor friend Steven. What Ingrid doesn't realize is that Erik is working undercover for Interpol, and has intentionally left the bag (which contains microfilm) to be picked up by Bruno (a shady character whose allegiances have not yet been made clear to the viewer) for delivery to Erik's partner Peter who is deep undercover investigating a crime ring. What follows is a madcap chase as the camera bag follows a circuitous path around Europe.

  Loved this track -- I'm a sucker for a nice fretless bass melody. It's also very evocative musically of the imaginary scene described. Great work, Tim.
