A police procedural without the action
20 August 2013 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

A police procedural without the action. Well, almost but the investigative work and interviews with main suspects is exceedingly well done, even a little politics creeping in, as an Italian who is picked up on suspicion is treated so much worse than the rich and broadly well connected.

The film opens with the discovery of Mimsy Farmer's character's body being discovered and the police investigation is interspersed with flashbacks, so we do see her in action and she is as lovely as ever and very persuasive in her easy, carefree seductions. May not sound the most interesting of movies but it is surprisingly engaging with decent dialogue and very good effective pacing.

Now and again an odd happening helps keep this one bubbling along nicely.
