Storyline

Eileen Maloney, a hostess at a strip joint, has woken up to find her two children are missing. Lieutenant Bramm suspects that she killed them herself. He questions her for days about her lifestyle, her children, her ex-husband, men and women, and life in general. He forces her to re-enact her last moments in the children's room hoping to shock her into giving more information. The lieutenant's infatuation is not merely professional, however, and soon they are reversing roles. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

If you like disturbing dialog, you'll enjoy this movie
9 June 1999 | by (Massachusettes) – See all my reviews

I don't know. I kinda liked it. I thought this move was very much in the fashion of Tenneseee Williams. Two small bodies (Does the title refer to the dead children or the two principal characters?) talk to each other about their messed up lives. This dialog is intertwined with the detective's attempt to find the killer of the two children. I have this idea that it's the purpose of art to make you think or feel something; anything. This movie disturbed me at some level. That made it worth watching.
