Pulp Fiction
Trendy teenagers and young adults, attuned to oblique or perverse associations, are likely to recall the opening riff from PULP FICTION - in which John Travolta impresses his fellow hit-man by explaining that the French call a quarterpounder with cheese a royale.

The plot is separated in three different stories. These three stories fit perfectly to each other. The first is about John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, two hit men who have to get a briefcase for there boss (Ving Rhames). The second is about Bruce Willis, a boxer who betrayed the boss of Travolta and Jackson. The third is about Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer, who rob a restaurant. It happens that Travolta and Jackson are at the same moment in the very same place. They have a couple of problems on there way, Harvey Keitel is their saviour and Travolta has a hard time with the wife of Ving Rhames (played by Uma Thurman). It sounds very intricate, sometimes it is, but most of the time it is easy to follow.
