This summer's coolest action hero is tooling around with some of the best directors in Hollywood, but he can't be found at the multiplex. Part James Bond, part Mad Max, part Man with No Name, he's a chilly lone wolf with a heart of gold. He's unflappable under pressure. He works for clients ranging from diamond smugglers to movie stars to the United Nations. He's got presence to spare and charisma to burn. And he's selling BMWs. Known only as The Driver, and played with compelling minimalist range by the understated British actor Clive Owen (from last summer's art-house hit Croupier and the PBS mystery series Second Sight)

MUNICH -- Japan's Honda Motor Co. yesterday distanced itself from a long-term commitment to Britain's Rover Group PLC, now controlled by Germany's BMW, and indicated that it might take a go-it-alone stance in Europe.Honda's cautious new approach became clear as Bayerische Motorenwerke AG, or BMW, agreed to take over full ownership of Rover Group by acquiring the 20 percent stake held by Honda. But that accord did not resolve the question of Honda's continued cooperation with Rover."The vital question is not yet answered," said Andreas Wahl, German equities analyst at Hoare Govett Securities Ltd. Analysts said that Rover's current model lines depend on technology and parts supplied by Honda.
