Brits Take a Whack At Noir
25 June 2010 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Pretty good British Noir attempt, and with an intricate plot which does not allow any fridge visits. I don't agree with the reviewer above who felt it had a rough edge to it - to the contrary, I thought it was a very polite, bloodless form of noir. There is one fight (judo-style) and a shooting, which is shown in a flashback.

Having said that, I found 'Uneasy Terms' engrossing and with a labyrinthine plot, and with just one star that I recognized in the person of Michael Rennie. Actually, Nigel Patrick plays a heavy but he is more well-known in the UK than in the States. The story unfolds as Private Eye Rennie is drawn into a plot reminiscent of 'Farewell, My Lovely' as not two but THREE sisters are trying to 'adjust' their dead father's will (he was not dead when one of them contacted Rennie, you find out quickly). There then follows a number of plots and sub-plots, all of which makes sense at the end of the picture.

Very entertaining movie which also wins a Hand-Painted Mustache Cup for Most Inappropriate Musical Score, written and directed by Hans May. Very annoying, but don't let it deter you.
