if it lacks a little blood, it certainly contains enough menace
30 January 2008 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Enthralling and well made giallo tinged thriller. Superb central performance and great score and if it lacks a little blood, it certainly contains enough menace. We are constantly trying to work out both 'who dunnit' and when or even if, but the quirky music starts up again and amidst the crashes and recurring dream/vision/memory we are sent reeling once more. Fine opening, which is pretty bone crunching, stunning ending and in between plenty to keeps one's attention. My son who heard the 'seven black notes' of the title as he was passing through, whilst I watched, advises me that they were used by Tarantino in Kill Bill, as a tribute, presumably and quite right too.
