Great
11 October 2002 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This plot had me guessing all the way to the end, and what an ending !

I was especially struck by the apt depiction of a corrupt and dangerous underworld, Anisio's very convincing performance as a threatening unscrupulous monster from the ghetto, and how alien his attitude was to the mannerly and typically ordered behaviour of the businessmen who's lives he becomes entangled with.

I enjoyed being made uncomfortable by the idea that this order (the boring business world) can be turned upside down by a character like Anisio who doesn't realise or care about any rules or etiquette, and like a vampire once invited over the threshold, has the power to do what he wants. An obvious theme is the retribution summed up by the cliche 'those who live by the sword die by the sword', or in other words if you dabble in crime a criminal end awaits you.
