For everyone who likes the 30's detektiv romans, the "hero" talks the story to himself and you see while you hear his thoughts.
if you like a good movie with no useless action, happy ending, if you accept you know the end of the story in the first 2 minutes of the movie and see the movie in remembers and the hunting of the murderer.
if all of this is OK for you, jaeh it could be one of the best movies you saw.
the ones here give 1/10, i think they like happy endings or they like hardcore action nonstop and all this "newschool" things but this is a lowbudged movie you have to understand what it means and what art of film you have to expect, a film that is strong in some parts but not in graphics and all the new stuff that destroys good movies nowadays
for me it is the best movie out of like 500 i saw in the last 5 years.
