Complex characters
9 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is an entertaining tail of a bunch of complex characters and their history, as a private detective tries to find out about their past ( and his own!). Unfortunately the film totally collapse in the last 10- 15 minutes. I don't see the use of this "epilogue" at all, and for reasons ( budget?) that are not clear to me, this part of the film is suddenly filmed on video. This gives a strange contrast to the rest of the film, that's nicely shot.
