Storyline

A talented young actress seeks the professional help of an acting coach. But he seems quite odd, and she finds files of other pupils murdered by him. As he tries to kill her to, she shoots him. As the police arrive at the scene a different corpse is lying dead on the ground, which seems to be the real teacher. As she fell in some sort of love with the false teacher, she tries to find him, and discovers that he was just an actor like herself, and that she is just a puppet on a string in a perverse and bizarre story...

Seriously not good.
29 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a Colin Firth fan and will watch anything he's in. He is the sole redeeming part of this film. He plays two characters in effect and plays them well, despite the abysmally inept script and direction. Everything about this film is seriously bad and very cheap looking. Spending a little more on clothing and props would definitely have been worth it. The lead actress, playing an aspiring starlet, is dressed like a preschool teacher and an important prop--the necklace--looks ugly and cheap. Jennifer Rubin does a good job as the "agent" at the end of the movie, but her performance as the actress during the teaching scenes with Colin Firth is very bad, although Ms. Rubin has done good work in other films. This is a recommend to fill in your Colin Firth inventory, but once is enough, and he's the only actor worth watching.
