fantastic! post modern tour-de-force.
19 February 2002 | by (norwich, england) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was amazing! The main character (played by Edward woodward) is set up from the very beginning as an amazing counterpoint in both style and attitude to the rather more meagre figures of his daughter (Elizabeth Hurley) and her gung ho New York cop boyfriend. The film to me was essentially a post-modern take on the family unit visa ve the main character's relationship with his daughter and with the, somewhat threatening, character of her boyfriend. This tension between the three characters is played out beautifully against the backdrop of contemporary urban society (a rather bleak New York), and this tension is in the end resolved, as the characters find out through the exploration of their differences that they are not altogether that dissimilar in their outlook. The twist at the end was a touch of genius and kept me guessing right up to the final moment. Fantastic! See it if you can!
