Good little melodrama
22 December 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This is a complicated soap opera about a girl from a rich family who is running with an artist, the young man (not the artist) who loves her and the older woman in the night club that befriends them. When a murder occurs and it looks like the young girl might have done it the older woman covers up for her for reasons that the girl never suspects.

Good melodrama that is similar to several other films but which manages to carve its own path thanks to the films structure which puts characters over plot and made me completely forget that a murder occurs in the second half.

Definitely worth a look.
