Men's dream turned into nightmare
20 February 2013 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I keep wondering if it is every man's dream to have a wife and then mistress(es). If they do, don't they keep it as a secret, even to their friends? Why would they share an apartment for their mistresses and conquests? Logistically it seems very difficult to implement.

Anyways, it is this intriguing thought that attracts me into this movie: we have five handsome and successful men and their wives, plus two mistresses and another young woman who is the sister of one of the five men. Then the police. There are simply too many characters to cram into a 108-minute drama, not to mention the different twists in plots.

It is no doubt an interesting suspense story, but the sheer number of characters seems to weaken the character development of the five friends, let alone their relationships with their wives and the friendship among them. There were many other elements the playwright could have explored instead of focusing on the twist of the actual murder. Sometimes I even think the interrogation scenes could have been cut.

A typical suspense movie, it does make us keep suspecting everyone to be the murderer, including the other mistress. Really miss Hitchcock! Ironically both the mistresses look more attractive than the five wives! I wonder if the director did it on purpose…

I would love to see the original Loft made in Belgium (in Dutch) in 2008 and look forward to the Hollywood remake (in English) to be released in 2013.
