Old school Tony Perkins thriller
26 February 2007 | by (New haven, ct, usa) – See all my reviews

Poor Tony Perkins, ever since Psycho he's doomed to play these parts. Anyway, this is another in the same vein, pretty well done; as imported into the US it seems so Veddy Veddy English with a slightly jarring Teutonic touch popping up from time to time.

I found parts of it hard to keep track of, but maybe that's me. I actually watched it a second time and was able to keep track of it all then.

Kind of a Hitchcockian sensibility to the denouement; justice gets done, sort of, but not in a straightforward manner by any means.

Appealing as the female lead is, he part is pretty minimal considering her position in the credits.
