Chris O'Brien, devote Catholic and rookie cop with LAPD, is assigned to partner with the hard-edged, street-smart Nora Hugosian. A serial killer is loose, and all the victims are low-life guys whom Nora has dealt with. So, when the tire tracks of a police car are found at a murder scene, she's the prime suspect of internal affairs investigator Simon Hertzel. Chris and Nora start an affair, but meanwhile he has suspicions about her. Should he start his own investigation, which would be an act of betrayal, or trust her, as his partner and his lover? When a witness i.d.'s Nora's former partner, Michael Clemence, as the killer, Nora gives Mike an alibi, and things get complicated. Written by
'Black & White' is quite a conventional cop story. The script idea is quite interesting - a murder investigation that turns quickly in an internal police investigation involves a young (and Catholic!) cop and his sexy and more mature partner (Gina Gershon). Unfortunately, the good idea leads to a script full of logic holes (a several minutes shooting scene in a hospital at night without anybody hearing, for example!). Directing is heavy and conventional, makes the film difficult to watch, and spoils even the rather surprising final. The only reason that makes this film worth watching is Gena Gershon - she is a good actress, looks more attractive than ever - even in a cops uniform, and the role fits her perfectly. 6/10 on my personal scale.
