Incredible Actors' Performance
20 April 2006 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

I recently acquired this on DVD during a recent visit to the UK and was absolutely astounded by the sincerity of Donna Mills' performance. Every time I have seen this lady act in a film I have been impressed but in this film her performance was absolutely faultless and "criant de vérité". Although the plot is quite predictable, this does in no way detract from the emotion felt while watching the film, and I agreed with everything Donna Mills' character did - what other option is there when the justice system is so hopeless at nailing down killers !! I was also highly satisfied with the ending which I found to be a satisfactory compromise. Not being an American myself, the only question I have is "Is the American justice system as bad as this or was it made to appear hopeless just to give the film a meaning". The justice systems of France and the UK certainly seem far too concerned with the rights of the criminal and not those of the victim but I would have hoped that it was otherwise in the USA !!!
