Quietly good....
12 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I was completely duped by the characters in this film. A psychological thriller mixing passion and murder, certainly not out of touch for a probable big screen release.

As a massive fan of Jaclyn Smith, she really does shine in Lies Before Kisses, and carries off a strong performance. There definitely is a little Hitchcockian-type feel to the film, which is spoilt by an uninspiring and extremely quick ending, but otherwise lifted by the great interaction between Jaclyn and the legendary Ben Gazzara.

Overall however, Lies Before Kisses is an interesting film, full of suspense, and good overall depth in all of the main characters. It does make a change to see Jaclyn in a role where she is not portraying a 'victim' in so many words, such were her roles in Nightkill and The Rape of Doctor Willis for example. Keen eyed viewers may also recognise the family home used in the film - it was the setting for two episodes of Charlie's Angels back in 1980.
