A film noir, psychological thriller in the vein of "Body Heat", "Basic Instinct", and "Double Indemnity", this film centers on two old friends and the woman who comes between them in a small American town. Money, lust, and obsession are American Standards, and even the tightest bonds are not immune to their pull. Written by
almost boring, white page for a lot of Hitchcock influences but without the science to use it, interesting actors and poor characters, a labyrinth with not solid walls, it desires present a smart story but , if, few parts can be nice, the whole construction s far t be attractive.one of many dusty movies, without real value but useful to remember old ideas of other directors. and occasion for actors to improve a story , fascinating as idea but not on TV screen. that is all. a film like many others, about nothing and for nobody. the sparkles, love story, pyramid of details are only pebbles in desert. because it is not credible and the script possibilities are almost imaginary. for the desire to be original using, in not inspired manner, old fragments in a chaotic puzzle.
