    In the early 80's the skala tv rental service in the Netherlands showed movies on their televisons in their shop windows.

    I am looking for the name of the film they showed.

    It was probably an american/canadian film about the cold war.

    A few things i can remember

    1. a men opens a briefcase in that brief case are two aluminium containers kind of silves colored small fire extinguesers. He takes one out pull the handle and throws it in a black car.

    2. a men with a bomb belt at a large open space. he walks to his target.

    3. a men with a sniper rifle on top of a high building not a modern one but with large bloks of stones from a quarry.

    4. The man with the rifle shoots the men with the bomb belt in his forhead

    5. The man who shoots could be sean connery of lee marvin

    Gorky Park is a possibility but the suitcase part makes me think of Michael Caine in the Billion Dollar Brain

    Me too jon and the sniper could be Karl Malden, the only thing that sounds like Gorky Park is Lee Marvin. Here's another shot in the dark.. The Fourth Protocol.

    Sounds a bit like the end of The Satan Bug.
