Alliance and hostility
3 March 2007 | by Thorsten_BSee all my reviews

Based on Patricia Highsmiths novel „The Blunderer", this rarely seen black and white crime movie deserves to be screened more often. It's the story of two men whose fate links them together by accident – or is it by plan? Separate of each other and at this point without connection, two women are killed. Their husbands are prime suspects, though police cannot prove their guilt. When they are confronted with each other, a strange combination of alliance and hostility is forged, while each one thinks of his opponent as a murderer. The psychological game unfolds. For one of them, the rope around his neck gets tighter, but he still has a card to play… It's no brilliant material, but the clever screen play and the good performances make it an enjoyable film for all "Highsmithians" and the likes.
