Two extremely clever British men are in a game of trickery and deceit. Andrew Wyke, an aging famous author who lives alone in a high-tech mansion, after his wife Maggie has left him for a younger man; and Milo Tindle, an aspiring actor, equipped with charm and wit, who demonstrates both qualities once again. When Wyke invites Tindle to his mansion, Tindle seeks to convince the former into letting his wife go by signing the divorce paper. However, Wyke seems far more interested in playing mind games with his wife's new lover, and lures him into a series of actions he thoroughly planned in seeking revenge on his unfaithful spouse.

In the film, Andrew often mistakes Milo for a hairdresser. In the original Sleuth, Milo was a hairdresser, not an actor. See more »
In the scene where Andrew is explaining how Milo can break into the house, a security monitor shows the ladder against the side of the house. Moments earlier, the same ladder was shown to be on its side on the ground. See more »
I saw Sleuth(1972) a lot years ago.I remember I liked it but I did not think it was a great movie.Now,the remake of that film,is a pretty interesting remake and I have to say I liked it more than the original film.I will not make comparisons between the two movies.I will only talk about Sleuth(2007).The best element from this movie are the performances.Michael Caine and Jude Law bring extraordinary performances,full of details.This film is not boring and it kept me very entertained and interested.The only fail about this movie is that the third act is not as good as the first two acts.I mean,it's not bad but it's not at the same level of the rest of the movie.But,still with that,Sleuth is a pretty fine and interesting remake with two excellent performances.I can totally recommend it.
