When an Honest Man Finds Corruption in the Breast of His Family
26 February 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Chicago, Zach Resnick (Michael Ontkean) is an honest detective from homicide department, working in a case of murder of a director in front of a restaurant. He finds that the target was indeed a prominent politician. While investigating, he realizes that his father, the policeman Abraham Resnick (Martin Landau), is a dirty cop and is involved in the crime. He faces a great dilemma, causing serious problems to him. This film has a good story, which could be improved. The performance of Michael Ontkean, Martin Landau and Eli Wallach are very convincing, and the jazz in the soundtrack recalls the atmosphere of those film-noir of the 30s and 40s. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): `Legado de Mentiras' (`Legacy of Lies')
