A movie about murder and guilt!
16 December 2002 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Competent adaptation of a Durrenmatt novel entitled "Trapps" where a weird group of lawyers, judges and even a hangman reunites in a far and deserted mansion to prosecute common people for their crimes (even if the defendant has no idea of what crime he is judging for). American traveller (Segal) falls in the trap and a surrealist judgement begins. Great cast in a movie that is not a movie about murder, mistery or "who is the murder?" classic line but is really a poignant question about guilty in ,modern times. Worth to see! I give this a 7 (seven).
