Artistic rendering of 1945 Hamilton Torso murder case
19 January 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 50-minute movie is a spell-binder. It riveted my attention from start to finish; all the acting was superb. It wonderfully captured the mood of movies during the 1940's with its black and white presentation, so evocative of all those Bogart films. Sarah Slean was terrific, as was Tom McCamus. Great pace and mood for a film made in 2005.

I saw it on Opening Night (CBC High Definition) in the late afternoon, Pacific Time. I had things I was planning to do, but the moment the movie started I realized I was hooked. Sarah, who had been more of a singer than an actor until this film, will surely be seen again in film, as she is has great stage presence and timing.
