It's 1947 and private investigator Nero Bloom is about to experience his most twisted mystery yet! When hired by a rich socialite to secretly follow and protect her gambling husband, Charlie Lomax, Nero has no idea what mix of mystery and intrigue lay ahead. While the case seems to be "business as usual" at first, things quickly take a turn for the worse when Nero catches Charlie sneaking off to a secret love-nest rendezvous at a local hotel.

With the help of friend and news reporter Max Cohen, Nero sets off to question anyone who could possibly be a suspect.

I thought Nero Bloom was outstanding. While watching, I forgot it was 2009. I was transported into the setting, somewhere in the 1940's I'm guessing. I was transfixed into the plot immediately. I loved how, not only was there suspense and the puzzling twists you draw from mysteries, but there was action and humor. Another aspect, sometimes movies of this genre run a bit long, or drag a conclusion. This film had great timing, so I was able to stay interested every minute. The acting was very believable, the actors seemed very experienced and prepared. I look forward to, and hope to see this movie up for awards. Nero Bloom was a very well rounded film and I was very, very impressed.
