Storyline

A pawnbroker is found murdered in a remote town. Police suspect that he was murdered by an acquaintance, as even the most experienced investigator on the case could identify no signs of resistance. Three people come under suspicion but all of them have perfect alibis and the investigation comes to a standstill. One year later, one of them is found dead and the original murder case becomes even more mysterious. Almost fifteen years pass and the lead inspector, now approaching retirement, reflects on the only case he could not solve in an otherwise successful career. Haunted by a sense of responsibility and guilt that he caused suffering by letting the murder case go unsolved, he decides to re-investigate. His persistent search brings attention to the long forgotten case and reveals a hidden relationship between the victim's son and the neighborhood woman's daughter. As their love grows, more crimes happen. As their sin grows, the inspector's chase comes closer to them. Written by The Film Catalogue

Another filmmaker needed here.
28 April 2010 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This big budget suspense movie started out with a good story but eventually it becomes more and more uneven.

It is nicely shot, but the script is messy and almost every scene is headed towards a climax and it just kills the mood and the interest in the story.

I personally felt like that the film crew focused on shooting all the scenes but did not succeed in editing the story together well enough. Many scenes also feel like they did not need to be in the film and i did not really feel sympathy for any of the main characters.

With another director like Jong Boon-Ho or Park Chan-Wook i think this movie could have been very well made, instead of this more or less forgettable mess of what is basically a very interesting crime suspense story.
