Did You Know?

The brother of Pierre (the Steve Buscemi's character) is played by Michael Buscemi, Steve's real-life brother.See more »
Continuity: At the beginning, as Pierre leaves the hospital to meet with Katya he calls a cab. At this point we see his shirt is out and over his trousers. But at the hospital it is tucked in. And at the restaurant it is again tucked in. As Pierre leaves the loft his shirt is out of his pants as it it should be.See more »
Katya:Do you like fishnet stockings, Pierre? Wait. Let me rephrase. Why do you think it is that men like fishnet stockings so much?
Pierre Peders:They look good on women.
Katya:Fishnet stockings are a net, and the woman is imprisoned in this net like a fish. Do you get it?
Pierre Peders:Yeah, and what about high heels?
Katya:Well, high heels make walking very, very difficult. So you see, nothing would be more attractive to a man than a woman wearing fishnet stockings and high heels because she has trouble walking and she's imprisoned within this net and therefore he thinks she's easy prey. I know everything.

It's good but..., 3 September 2007
Author: DaleHirst from Southampton, UK

It felt like it was half finished. I expect Buscemi was meant to be the villain of the piece but I ended up feeling far more sympathy for his character than I did for Sienna Miller's protagonist.

Maybe that was intentional but it left me feeling less than satisfied with the ending and at a running time of under 80 minutes, it felt like there could have been a lot more to the story. While I can appreciate films which leave you to fill in the blanks as you see fit - such as the otherwise completely dissimilar "The World According to Garp" - this film felt like it could have benefited from another half hour of story. Perhaps redemption of either character or revenge for/reversal of the trick Miller's character pulls on Buscemi's.

That said it was extremely well written and directed and the performances by both leads were pretty exceptional, hence a high score, but for the dissatisfaction I felt with the ending it would have been an 8 or even 9 out of 10 for me.
