No suspense; too much melodrama!
13 January 2008 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

This film is so bad! It's a pseudo-thriller about a guy that kills his victims by impulse, doing it without any reason or sense! I think the entire plot is pretty absurd, making no sense this pseudo cat-mouse game played by the two main (and almost only!) characters of this movie. The main idea is not bad, and if it was done in a nice way it could turn in a nice plot/movie, but in this film it was too pushed to the melodrama! At parts it's so slow and melancholic that it turns too melodramatic and boring! And who the hell thinks that Jazz music is good to create suspense?! My God, sometimes the soundtrack is so disconnected from scenes!

To resume it's a pseudo-intellectual thriller that totally fails. It has no suspense, no tension, no mystery, no good acting, no sense… no quality! It was a disappointment, as I was expecting something much better!
