I was moved to near-tears, not only by the film but also by the poignant score that accompanies this absorbing reminisce about two brothers, now at the end of their lives. The music, by Georges Delerue, is a perfect compliment to the moving story of these uncommon brothers. Especially at the end, when it left me so affected that I could only sit and listen as the credits rolled - unable (and unwilling) to shake off the emotion you are left with.
Morality, murder, power, corruption and terrific acting wrapped in a 40s detective story. A reminder that we can never go back and change our decisions, and they can so often affect those around us as much as ourselves.
