Excellent
3 November 2006 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I've now seen this twice, and the second viewing confirmed my first impression that this is an outstanding piece of work.

Cop mysteries are so common that they need to be truly special to stand out from the dross, and this one is. Its merit probably comes primarily from the script, which is excellent. The basic plot is complex, and it is revealed very slowly, but it keeps moving steadily enough to remain comprehensible and maintain the desire to concentrate so as not to miss a vital point. The direction, editing and general production bring out the quality of the script and are excellent in themselves. The music deserves a separate pat on the back.

It's enjoyable because it makes you think. The crucial points of the plot are revealed in such a way as to make the viewer understand how the character must have felt; the situations seem real and immediate.

I can't understand why, at the time I write this, it has a rating of only 6. It's far, far better than that.
