This is a very interesting film, but it should've been longer! The beginning, which leads up to the hero's death, seems to go on FOREVER (altho, it's only 15 mins). The rest of the film (about 45 mins) is an EXTREMELY well-done mystery; you won't guess who the murderer is until the very end. However, the "mystery" part of the film is much too "hurried" and things happen too fast, the end result is that you don't have time to piece together the clues. If they would've added another 30 mins (or so) to this film, and slowed down the pace, it would've been an EXQUISITE film! As it stands, it's not bad, but the action is so fast, that you might have to see it several times to understand it all!
