Sincere Ladies and the Boredom of Old Age
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this is totally over the top, I got the biggest kick out of watching these older character actors, hamming it up as the young detective comes and goes from their house. They seem intent on getting arrested, down to the killing of their own. The entire plot rests on the handsome detective being drawn into their little plot. The idea must be to just get some excitement into their lives. There even seems to be a rivalry among them, but they apparently have a tacit agreement to respect the fate of the "winner." The detective is flummoxed and realizes that while he must do his duty, he cannot understand the motive. By the way, the ending is priceless.
