Storyline

Ten years ago, after being accused of a hideous murder of a mother and her twin daughters, Sean Veil became paranoid, filming himself along twenty-four hours a day to have an alibi if necessary. The small time psychologist Saul Seger became a famous forensic profiler and writer with the case and every now and then he accuses Sean Veil of the crime. The reporter Katie Carter believes in Sean's innocence. When the body of the missing Mary Shaw is found, Sean has to prove where he was five years ago. However, the tapes that can prove that he is not guilty have mysteriously disappeared from the storage shelf and Sean suspects that Saul has stolen them to incriminate him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Dark, Intriguing and Original
30 September 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ten years ago, after being accused of a hideous murder of a mother and her twin daughters, Sean Veil (Lee Evans) became paranoid, filming himself along twenty-four hours a day to have an alibi if necessary. The small time psychologist Saul Seger (Ian McNeice) became a famous forensic profiler and writer with the case and every now and then he accuses Sean Veil of the crime. The reporter Katie Carter (Rachel Stirling) believes in Sean's innocence. When the body of the missing Mary Shaw is found, Sean has to prove where he was five years ago. However, the tapes that can prove that he is not guilty have mysteriously disappeared from the storage shelf and Sean suspects that Saul has stolen them to incriminate him.

The dark, intriguing and original "Freeze Frame" is a great surprise. This low-budget movie has a very weird and confused beginning, with a bizarre character and an eerie but stylish cinematography, but it is worthwhile watching it if the viewer likes independent movies. The interpretation of Lee Evans is great with his paranoid character following his own rules of behavior. There are many twists and a surprising end. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Cena do Crime" ("The Crime Scene")
