Early in the movie "Chasing Cain: Face", detectives Kozlowski and McGoogan inform their new partner that they consider "Family and friends" in their investigations and, like the first "Chasing Cain" movie, relatives and culture form an important link. Both movies, like the original Cain murder story from Genesis, commingles blood covenant and blood relatives. In "Cain:Face", Conrad Baptiste and his kin Vincent are implicated in the murder of Camella, a fellow Carib. "Chasing Cain "1" focussed on the Slovak community of Toronto with great success. In "2", the makes focus on another ethnic group, the West Indies immigrants. The people our three smoking gun detectives meet in this episode speak Barbados patois, work at Reggae record shops and eat at Caribbean hangouts. These all add a special spice to the stew. Another interesting flavour in the mix is the realistic new of an OPP that is torn by cutbacks, where shared personnel and shared office space intensify the pressure to catch the subway killer. some additional treats this movie offers are Jerry Ciccoritti's personal camera style he perfected by TRUDEAU(ex. mulit-split screens) and an all too short cameo by veteran actor David Fox as a slimy aristocrat who can not leave Miss McGoogan alone at a party. Overall, a delightful dish that, like many ethnic delicacies, is a pleasure to occasionally encounter.
I am a fan of murder mysteries and this is one of the very best. It is complicated, there are many distractions, several red herrings, a lot personal relationship issues and the murder of a young, beautiful girl from the Caribbean. She has had a lot of boy friends and there are plenty of people in her apartment building. Peter Outerbridge plays as a cerebral, dedicated, no nonsense detective as does Alberta Watson. The newcomer, Karen LeBlanc, makes some important discoveries herself but doesn't get enough screen time in my opinion. I gave this flick a 10.
