Storyline

Simple tale, well presented
24 August 2000 | by (Carmichael, California) – See all my reviews

With a few twists and turns, the story unfolds easily, occasionally predictably. Good use of cinematic narration, the titles only representing dialog and transitions. Generous use of appropriate flashback scenes filling in the story. A few story threads left untied, but generally an amiable plot. Sometimes you wonder if the old Judge isn't half-mad.
