Trivia

Viva Bianca wasn't able to take the part originally due to scheduling conflicts with Spartacus; however, the return of Andy Whitfield's cancer uprooted the production schedule as it was clear he was not able to continue. While in the series was in stasis, Viva filmed this movie. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the film, Shay stands near a train holding a coin and goes to a beggar sitting nearby to give him the coin. In the first scene, the beggar was sitting with his legs crossed above the ground, but in the next scene when Shay drops the coin in the beggar's hat, he was sitting his legs touching the ground.

Brilliant Film - If you give it a chance.
16 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Don't be beguiled by the low IMDb rating. This film has a lot more to offer than viewers seem to allow.

The tag-lines seem to give off a different vibe, making it more sensational; of course, this may be the reason why high expectations come out of the oven flopped. This film is NOT a "Night of Vengeance" - trust me when I say that the whole idea of "avenging" is completely bogus. If anything, it's more a story of two women living on polar-opposite sides of the spectrum, who try to survive and make a life by whatever means they have.

It details their life by a serendipitous encounter, a span of perhaps two-three nights, which builds into a climax. There is a thriller element, but it's not really the central issue. If anything, it's a side-factor which builds onto the story - onto THEIR story.

My advice is to have an open mind and absorb the story - it's not the mainstream plot development, although there is a definite construct evident in it.

Personally, I was more impressed by the cinematography and the editing. Everything felt freshly dynamic. The wild action scenes were cuttingly ragged and energetic, which was highly contrasted against the gorgeously delicate ones. I would give it an 8/10 for the aesthetics alone.

If I had to describe the film in one word, it would be "sensual." Everything about the film, from the audiovisuals (music, ambiance, colours, etc.) to the dialogue stimulates your senses.

Caution: there are a few scenes of explicit nudity and violence, and other provocative scenes which may feel distasteful to the prudent mind. To be frank, I think it lends the film an honesty which is hard to find in motion picture these days. However, if this sort of thing isn't your cup of tea, I would recommend against it.

I hope this helps.
