Storyline

Chris Maurer is killed the day after his 21st birthday and his grieving mother, Angela Maurer, is unable to come to grips with that fact. She is taken advantage of by a self-interested journalist who only cares about getting a front-page story and she is completely dissatisfied with the way the police are handling the case. A local shopkeeper tries to help her through these trying times, but to no avail. The police arrest Chris' friend Ryan McGuinness, after they learn Chris may have spent the night with Ryan's girlfriend but Chris also had a testy relationship with his brother-in-law. The Good Samaritan who found Chris bloodied and beaten on the sidewalk agrees to participate in a reconstruction of the crime. In the end, a simple slip of the tongue reveals the identity of the killer and then the motive for the murder. Written by garykmcd

Competent, but plodding.
22 January 2003 | by (Canterbury, UK) – See all my reviews

"Murder" is competently acted and Julie Walters & Om Puri always bring something to a film, but this one plods a little. I also felt that it was a little emotionally manipulative: birthday cards arrive from dead son, dead son's voice on answering machine, etc, etc.. all the cliches. Not much progress is made towards answering the central question: Whodunnit? - although there are all sorts of "symbolic" clues. There are four hour-long episodes, I've watched three more out of morbid curiosity than by being thrilled or compelled. I'm fervently hoping that tomorrow's (hopefully) thrilling conclusion will have made it all worthwhile. Oh, there are some interesting insights into the workings of the tabloid press... but ultimately I wouldn't care this way or that if I hadn't bothered to watch it.
