Quotes

Casey Heinz: [Discussing bob's murder] It wasn't a thief. I'll tell you that right now.
Clark: I agree.
Casey Heinz: I mean why stab a guy thirty times? Bob, he'd piss in his pants if you showed him a knife. You know that?
Sondra Dorio: What are you saying?
Casey Heinz: I'm saying Sondra, that you have to really hate a person to stab him that many times.
Casey Heinz: [to Bill] You're a shrink, right? You know what kind of power people hand over to shrinks. Well, maybe sometimes they hand over more than they want too!
Clark: That is absolutely correct. A thief would not stick...

Outstanding images, they created the very special atmosphere and succeeded in keeping it throught the whole movie
16 June 2002 | by (Kiev, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

The movie has a few moments that persisted in my mind for long: the falling woman scene at the beginning of the movie, the murder scene(you almost feel the pain from those knife cuts), of course very sincere love moments. The movie has great mystery that keeps you in investigation mood throught the movie.The images of this movie persist for long, not an ordinary movie. thanks to authors, Bruce and Jane.
