There's No Such Thing as a Happy Ending
9 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

It is out of season and the temporary employee Pierre (Jordan Frieda) of an amusement park seaside has all his savings stolen by the crook Simeon Guant (David Murray), a friend of his girlfriend Kelly Phillips (Dominique Swain). Kelly is daughter of the owner of the park, Michael Philipps (Jim Carter), who is married with Eileen Phillips (Gina Gershon). Eileen cheats her husband with Simeon, and they plot to kill Michael simulating a burglary and get his life insurance. Pierre, without any money, associates to the owner of a bar, the former thief Harry Barlow (Dennis Hopper), who teaches him how to burglar. The reunion of these six characters has no happy ending.

"Out of Season" is an unsuccessful attempt of neo-noir movie. The amoral characters are all losers, cheating, betraying, blackmailing, stealing, corrupting etc. and it is impossible to feel sympathy for any character of this dark and unpleasant story. Gina Gershon plays the fatal woman and is very sexy as usual. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Temporada de Crime" ("Season of Crime")
