Another in a string of interesting Richard Grieco films
3 November 2000 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

Because of pressing financial need, a man and woman, newly-minted lovers, decide to commit the crime of kidnapping for ransom. A nicely crafted script marked by attention to detail bring about a rewarding drama of suspense. By any yardstick, Matt Dorff's directorial debut shows a good deal of promise as he uses his players well. Richard Grieco and Marie-Josee Croze, the leads, are given ambiguity in their roles by scriptor Mark Perry to guarantee that audience interest is maintained. The supporting cast give generally good performances. Cinematographer Georges Archambault ensures that the Canadian settings are of visual interest and lighted to match the varying moods. The subject is not a new one, but the business surrounding an apparent first attempt at crime are of abiding focus. One caveat: avoid reading the video box liner notes; as is too often the case, the scribbler was operating with a handicap of insensitivity or imbelicity, or both, and gives away too much of a fragile plot. However, even with this constraint, the viewer will be able to apply sensibility to an underrated work.
