A Little Hitchcockian masterpiece of suspense, lies & deceit
28 January 2003 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

Apart from a flat and uninspired ending, this film is a little masterpiece of suspense almost worthy of Alfred Hitchcock. Without revealing the plot, I must admit I was completely duped by this one. You'd never guess the reality behind the appearances. Also there is one passage where you see people in court speaking to each other but there is no sound, instead there is a theme music I would swear was pinched from a Hithcock film. Eighty five percent of the film is very good and each new revelation has you saying " My God, I'd never have guessed it was that..........etc ). The only negative point is the ending which is rather flat and tepid and just does not do justice to the eighty five preceding minutes' suspense. In fact when you come to think of it the ending isn't really plausible at all, and I think something a little more dramatic and unexpected could have been thought up by the scriptwriter. So if one admits that the end is not up to expectations, the rest of the film certainly is beyond expectations for a film of this sort - Also there is very good acting all round and the physical beauty of Jaclyn Smith. So - definitely worth a watch!
