Great suspense-thriller with an eerie feel to it accentuated by a lovely piece of music ...
1 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of my favourite films. Not fast-moving or action-packed; just the opposite, which gives it the effect it means to portray - an eerie suspense-thriller, with the atmosphere heightened by Beethoven's soothing-but-sad Moonlight Sonata - a beautiful piece of music, which drew me to the film initially. It has a good story with little sub-stories going on, and a melancholy edge.

David Carradine's performance as a drunk cop adds almost a hint of humour. He plays the part well, and is complemented by very competent performances by the other actors/actresses. The odd mixture of characters adds intrigue, and the remote setting adds a sense of peace and tranquility - soon to be disturbed!

All in all a very watchable movie.
