A decent story badly handled
31 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Artistically shot but credibility sacrificed for the sake of some close-ups where the characters are unnaturally close - faces a couple of inches from each other when any natural instinct would be to withdraw to at least a couple of feet.

Abrasive DI and his boss, Struther, heavy stereotypes of 'hard-bitten' cops. A shrewd and apparently objective and experienced female cop, Nardini (don't get her supposed sexual magnetism at all - to me she looks like the Judy doll from Punch and Judy, all forehead, nose, cheeks and chin), falls for her sister's lover without any apparent reason. Another credibility stretcher.

All in all, a decent plot that could have been much better handled were it not for the over-writing and visually arty ambitions of the director.
