Good acting and witty voice-overs in tolerable mystery.
21 August 2001 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This run-of-the-mill murder mystery in small city Ontario during winter has Benny Cooperman as an endearing and awkward Jewish private eye, who also provides some witty voice-overs. A patrician lady comes to his office because she feels her husband, whom she does not love yet is fond of, might be cheating on her. When the hubby turns up dead in his office, it is classed as a suicide. Benny follows the trail as the deaths begin to mount, and of course encounters some problems with the local police. There are no sex scenes while the few action scenes seem either disjointed or abbreviated. The climax though eerie fails to be terribly imaginative. Some of the characters prove eccentric yet they are effectively portrayed. Benny gets his meals at a neighborhood diner where the waitresses are much homier than the one in Five Easy Pieces. There are several literary references in the script that you rarely find in Raymond Chandler and that this movie would not have missed either. The acting stands as the strongest point.
